Expansion of Services 

The Mohave Substance-abuse Treatment Education Prevention Partnership (MSTEPP) and the Kingman Arizona Youth Partnership (AZYP) are pleased to announce an expansion of services for the Naloxone distribution site. Naloxone is a reversal agent for opioid overdoses that has saved thousands of
lives in the State of Arizona and hundreds of lives in Mohave County. Both MSTEPP and AZYP entered into a joint agreement to offer no-cost Naloxone to the community on February 1st .

Days and times of distribution were limited based upon COVID-19 restrictions. With the lifting of restrictions, the office is able to expand days and hours of service. Beginning July 6th the distribution site located at 2701 E. Andy Devine Avenue, Suite 115 will be open Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
For additional information regarding Naloxone or to set up a training, contact Robert DeVries, MSTEPP Program Coordinator at rdevries@mstepp.org or Julie Craig, AZYP Community Outreach Coordinator at juliec@azyp.org.
