One million THN kits shipped in BC: Naloxone is Not Enough

June 08, 2021

British Columbia's Take Home Naloxone (THN) program was launched in 2012 and today there are more than 1,860 distribution sites across the province. In May 2021, the program reached one million kits shipped to registered sites.

Partners and community members have played a critical role in providing training and ensuring naloxone gets into the hands of those who need it. The availability of naloxone has been crucial in saving lives, however on this milestone we recognize that naloxone is not enough. To highlight the perspectives of those who are experiencing the crisis in a very real way, people with lived and living experience who are members of the PEEP Consultation and Advisory Board and Peer2Peer teams have written letters explaining what this milestone means to them.

We remember the lives that have been tragically lost from a toxic drug supply. Overdose deaths are preventable and unacceptable. Naloxone alone is not enough.
