Obtaining a Project DAWN kit:
With the passage of HB 170, the kits may be dispensed to the individual with addiction, as well as a family member, friend, or loved one.
Many pharmacies in Hancock County and across Ohio provide naloxone without a prescription. In the pharmacy, insurance will be required, and there will be an out of pocket expense. Click here to see which pharmacies in Hancock County carry naloxone.
You may also obtain a naloxone kit for free through Hancock Public Health's Project DAWN program. Walk-in's are accepted, however, it is preferred that you schedule an appointment in order to ensure a staff member will be available to complete the education and distribution with you.
If you would like to schedule an appointment or would like more information, contact:
