42,077 kits distributed in 2022

HRO largest naloxone distributor in Ohio

Harm Reduction Ohio distributed a record 42,077 naloxone kits in 2022. We started this effort to save lives of people who use drugs from nothing in 2018. We are now Ohio’s largest distributor of the overdose-reversing drug naloxone and one of the largest efforts in the country.

Each kit of nasal and intramuscular naloxone that we distribute contains two naloxone doses, so we distributed more than 80,000 doses in 2022 and nearly 200,000 since we started the effort in 2018.

It takes the work of hundreds of people for a naloxone effort of this size to work.

A big heartfelt thank you to:

  • our amazing statewide network of 300+ volunteer layperson distributors.
  • our wonderful staff.
  • the kind, hard-working people at NEXT Distro, who process our online orders.
  • the professional and caring staff at the Ohio Department of Health’s Project DAWN program, which provides most of the naloxone we distribute.
  • to people who use drugs and those who love them for doing everything possible to get naloxone that final few feet, the hardest part of the supply chain, to the noses, thighs and shoulders of people struggling to breath.
