Substance Use Prevention


According to the most current statewide data, in 2020, 1,477 Coloradans died of drug overdoses – the most overdose deaths ever recorded in the state, and a 38% increase from 2019. Naloxone is an opioid antagonist medication that can reverse the effects of opioid overdose. 

Naloxone can quickly restore normal breathing to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped as a result of an opioid overdose. 

Summit County Public Health is now a Naloxone distribution site. Any member of the public may pick up Naloxone, at no charge, at Public Health during business hours. 360 Peak One Drive #230, Monday through Friday 8am-5pm. 

Trainings on substance use prevention and the administration of Naloxone are available on a monthly basis or by special request for businesses. To sign up for one of our monthly in person trainings, please visit this link:
