Free Narcan Saving Lives

By Panhandle Public Health District

The Nebraska Pharmacy Association in partnership with local pharmacies participating in the Statewide Naloxone Program continues to provide Narcan without a prescription and free of charge to Nebraska residents. Narcan 4mg (naloxone) is a life-saving nasal spray medication used to reverse the effects of opioid overdose.

In the Nebraska Panhandle, participating pharmacies include:

Alliance Community Pharmacy 315 Box Butte Avenue, Alliance 308-629-1045

Dave’s Pharmacy 223 Box Butte Avenue, Alliance 308-762-4811

As of March 31, 2023, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that naloxone 4mg nasal spray will be available to purchase over-the-counter without a prescription. The manufacturer of Narcan (naloxone) nasal spray has yet to release a timeline for availability and pricing for over-the-counter purchase. We encourage Nebraska patients and caregivers to take advantage of the availability of no-cost Narcan.

Please visit the Stop Overdose Nebraska website at for more information and a list of all participating Nebraska pharmacies.

More information will be provided once available by the manufacturer on pricing and over-the-counter availability of Narcan.

Panhandle Public Health District is working together to improve the health, safety, and quality of life for all who live, learn, work, and play in the Panhandle. Our vision is that we are a healthier and safer Panhandle Community. Visit our website
