County of San Diego logoThe County has a new, groundbreaking resource to battle fatal opioid overdoses. A naloxone vending machine is now in operation at the McAlister South Bay Regional Recovery Center in Chula Vista and you don’t have to be a member of the Center to use it.

This new machine will put opioid overdose medication in the hands of anyone who wants it, free of charge.

It is part of the County’s comprehensive Harm Reduction Plan and the first of several other vending machines scheduled to be installed across the region.
