We need lots of help. Let's talk about how we can work together.


Basis of $239 per-life-saved figure:

  • Price per dose of IM naloxone injection is $24.99 (https://www.buyemp.com/product/hospira-naloxone-vials)

  • At least 2 doses of naloxone packed in each naloxone kit

  • From 1996-2014, the CDC recorded naloxone kits distributed to 152,283 laypersons, and received reports of 26,463 overdose reversals by laypersons, for a ratio of 1 life saved for every 4.7 kits distributed. This ratio is conservative, because it does not include unreported reversals. (https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm6423a2.htm)

  • ($24.99 per dose x 2 doses per kit x 4.7 ratio) + (current OCRF overhead / doses distributed) = $239
