Opioid Overdose Treatment Bill

(Salem, OR) -- Naloxone will be widely available under a bill that passed the Oregon Legislature. The bill allows the overdose-reversing drug to be available in public buildings including grocery stores, restaurants, police departments, and schools. It also decriminalizes fentanyl test strips and other tools that reduce the risk of overdose. First responders and emergency medical providers will be able to distribute naloxone to anyone who asks for it. The bill now goes to the Governor.
