Starting in 2016, the Office of the Maine Attorney General began purchasing kits of intranasal Narcan® to be distributed to law enforcement agencies throughout the state of Maine to be used during emergency response calls to save the lives of people experiencing overdoses. During 2020 alone, over 270 successful opioid overdose reversals were reported to the Maine Naloxone Distribution Initiative from the Law Enforcement Naloxone Distribution Program. At present there are dozens of law enforcement agencies participating in the program including local police departments, county sheriff’s offices, county jails, game wardens, and state police.
