Arkansas law requires that opioid overdose rescue kits be located on each campus of state-supported institutions of her higher education.

UAM has installed over 40 opioid overdose kits across our campuses. These kits provide Naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal medication that will improve the capacity of bystander rescuers to save the lives of victims of opioid overdose.

Naloxone is safe and effective and has no effect on non-opioid overdoses.

No. According to Arkansas Take Back,

The Opioid Antagonist Immunity Act (2015) SB880 allows individuals to administer naloxone in good faith without civil liability, criminal liability, or professional sanctions. The purpose is to enhance the emergency services of first responders, to create the naloxone access act, and to provide immunity for prescribing, dispensing, and administering naloxone and other opioid antagonists.

Naloxone Instructions

If you administer Naloxone or Narcan, you should use the QR code on the packaging to report the use. 


UAM recommends that you download the NARCANsas app. It is a free opioid overdose app containing resources, links, and tools that will help you administer the drug Naloxone in the moment of an opioid overdose and provide steps on how to save a person’s life in the event of an opioid overdose.
