Medication naloxone now available without prescription at CVS Pharmacy locations in Idaho

WOONSOCKET, R.I., 2016-Aug-16 — /EPR Retail News/ — CVS Health (NYSE: CVS) announced today that the opioid overdose-reversal medication naloxone is now available without a prescription at CVS Pharmacy locations in Idaho. Under prescriptive authority allowed by the state, CVS Pharmacists will expand access to the medication.

“Naloxone is a safe and effective antidote to opioid overdoses and we can help save lives by increasing access to this medication in our Idaho pharmacies by the use of prescriptive authority for patients without a prescription,” said Tom Davis, RPh, Vice President of Pharmacy Professional Practices at CVS Pharmacy. “We are dedicated to helping the communities we serve address and prevent drug abuse and we are expanding access to naloxone to give more people a chance to get the help they need for recovery.”

In addition to Idaho, CVS Pharmacy locations in 30 other states can dispense naloxone to patients without an individual prescription.

“CVS Health has been a leader in helping communities prevent prescription drug abuse and we applaud their work to increase access to this life-saving drug for patients without a prescription at CVS Pharmacy locations in Idaho,” said Marcia Lee Taylor, President and CEO, Partnership for Drug-Free Kids. “Increasing access to naloxone is a critical public health priority that allows patients and their families to prevent opioid fatalities and recognize when people need help working towards recovery from the disease of addiction.”

CVS Health has also launched digital resources on giving patients and families a single destination to learn more about drug abuse prevention. These new resources build on CVS Health’s longstanding commitment to helping communities address and prevent drug abuse. In 2015, CVS Health launched a community outreach program called Pharmacists Teach, which brings local pharmacists to high school health classes to talk to students about the dangers of drug abuse. More than 100,000 students have already taken part in the program. High school teachers and administrators in Idahocan learn more about bringing Pharmacists Teach to their school here.

CVS Health has also joined with the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids to create the Medication Disposal for Safer Communities Program, which donates disposal units to local police departments, providing a safe and environmentally friendly way to dispose of unwanted medication.
