Prenoxad (Naloxone, Heroin Blocker)

RISE now offers Prenoxad which is an injectable opiate (heroin) blocker, which can temporarily reverse and prevent overdose until an ambulance arrives.

You can get this free of charge at the RISE Central or West hub following a brief needs-based assessment.  At your assessment, we will show you how to use and store Prenoxad and you can ask questions about your treatment options.

Prenoxad can save lives in the event of an overdose.  However, you must also seek medical attention for an overdose as Prenoxad is only a temporary measure.
