UHS expands access to Naloxone on campus, now includes College Library

August 30, 2023

Students, faculty, and staff at the University of Wisconsin–Madison now have greater access to naloxone on campus. Naloxone is a lifesaving medicine that can rapidly reverse an opioid overdose.

UW–Madison is a participant in Wisconsin Voices for Recovery‘s Nalox-ZONE Program, which provides free access to naloxone. Last fall, UW–Madison installed Nalox-ZONE boxes in University Housing that provided free access to NARCAN®, a brand of naloxone nasal spray. This August, due to campus-wide interest, UW–Madison installed 13 additional boxes, for a total of 25 locations on campus, so the entire UW–Madison community has access to this lifesaving measure.
