The Impact of Naloxone Access Laws on Opioid Overdose Deaths in the U.S.
Opioid overdose is the leading cause of unintentional death in the U.S. Narcan TM (Naloxone) is a prescription
medicine that can reverse overdose effects. This research investigates the effect of Naloxone access laws on
overdose death rates using state and temporal variation in the enactment of these laws. We also explore possible
spillover effects between Naloxone access laws and overdose death rates across states.
