Could you or someone you know be at risk of overdosing from an opiate? Aaron's Law (Senate Enrolled Act 406-2015) allows the general public to administer naloxone, a drug used to reverse opioid overdoses, to an individual at risk of opioid related overdose. The State Health Commissioner issued a standing order for registered individuals or agencies to distribute naloxone to anyone who would like to carry it. Linked below are two printable .pdf briefs regarding your protections and rights to carry and administer naloxone in Indiana.
