UPhA PRESS RELEASE: DOH Releases New Pharmacy State-Wide Standing Order for Naloxone

December 9th, Salt Lake City, The Executive Director of the Utah Department of Health signed a statewide standing order allowing pharmacists to dispense naloxone, without a prior prescription, to anyone at increased risk of experiencing or witnessing an opioid overdose. Naloxone is a safe and legal drug that can reverse an heroin and prescription opioid overdoses by blocking the effects of opiates on the brain and restoring breathing in minutes. 

 

During the 2016 General Legislative Session, Rep. Steve Eliason sponsored House Bill 240 Opiate Overdose Response Act, which passed authorizing the Utah Department of Commerce and UDOH to implement a standing prescription drug order to dispense naloxone. 

 

Having this statewide standing order in place will increase access to naloxone for the public. Included in the link below is the actual standing order. You may go to naloxone.utah.gov to learn more and to voluntarily enroll as a pharmacy acting under the standing order.
