Notice: Senate Enrolled Act 406, Overdose Intervention Drugs, has been signed into law by Governor Pence. The Act allows specified health care professionals with prescriptive authority to dispense, or write a prescription, or prepare a standing order for an overdose intervention drug (naloxone) without examining the individual to whom it may be administered if specified conditions are met. The Act also allows for an individual who is person at risk, a family member, friend, or other individual or entity in a position to assist another individual who, there is reason to believe, is at risk of experiencing an opioid-related overdose, to obtain and administer an overdose intervention drug if certain conditions are met.
