Illinois Pharmacists Who Complete Training Program Can Dispense Naloxone.
 
Pharmacists in Illinois who seek to dispense naloxone, the opioid overdose reversal drug, must complete the Illinois State Opioid Antagonist Training Program. A trained pharmacist can dispense naloxone following standardized procedures or protocols developed by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation with the Department of Public Health and the Department of Human Services under the law (Public Act 99-0480) passed in September 2015. Standardized procedures for pharmacists certified in naloxone antagonist training can be obtained by contacting the Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program.
