HealthPartners and Park Nicollet pharmacies have begun distributing naloxone to patients who have a prescription for opioid medication and are at higher risk of an overdose. The initiative includes patients with three or more opioid prescriptions within the last six months and those taking medication for substance use disorders. Until recently, only physicians and certain emergency medical personnel were authorized to administer naloxone.
