Dying for that Fentanyl Feeling –

August 27, 2020 – Health officials are urging people to review the resources below and be proactive about preventing overdose deaths:

  • Find out more about naloxone and where to get it at StoptheClockColorado.org, which lists pharmacies that stock naloxone in Denver (there may be a cost associated based on health insurance). There is a standing order for pharmacies, so you do not need an individual prescription to receive it from a pharmacy. Or, visit BringNaloxoneHome.org for more information on how naloxone works.
  • For people who use opioids and want medication-assisted treatment, they can visit the Denver Health emergency department 24/7 for an immediate assessment and induction on buprenorphine. They can also access treatment for other substances, as well. Denver Health’s Outpatient Behavioral Health Services can be reached at 303-602-4851.
  • For other types of treatment or mental health support, residents can contact the Colorado Crisis Services at 1-844-493-8255, text “TALK” to 38255, or visit the facility at 4353 East Colfax Avenue. In addition, resources are available at Let’s Talk Colorado.
  • Syringe services programs offer a host of services for people who use substances including naloxone. Contact Access Point at 303-837-1501; Harm Reduction
