Naloxone/Narcan Resources

SCU is committed to empowering our students to practice safer substance usage and to be prepared to administer potentially life-saving Naloxone to someone in need. Under California law AB-635, “Drug overdose treatment: liability”, any individual who administers Naloxone to someone they suspect is overdosing will not be held liable in civil or criminal court.

Naloxone Vending Machine

All students and staff can access a vending machine stocked with Naloxone in the basement of Benson Memorial Center, across from the bathrooms. Tap your access card up to twice a day to dispense a 2-dose box of Naloxone.

For additional boxes of Naloxone, please come to the Wellness Center at 852 Market Street, across the street from Swig Residence Hall.
