LifeSpring announces NaloxBoxes

LifeSpring Health Systems has announced the installation of “NaloxBoxes” at eight of their southern Indiana locations, thanks to a partnership with Overdose Lifeline. The boxes contain the life-saving medication, Naloxone, which reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. The boxes are intended to allow access to Naloxone at any time, without any barriers.

The boxes are accessible 24 hours a day, with no personal interaction needed. There is also no cost to use the boxes. Beth Keeney, DrPH, Executive Vice President of Community Health Initiatives said, “Low barrier access to Naloxone is a critical component to stemming the tide of preventable deaths from overdose. We’re grateful to Overdose Lifeline for their leadership in this area.”

The boxes were placed outside the LifeSpring offices in Corydon, English, Madison, Paoli, Rockport, Salem, Tell City, and the main administrative building in Jeffersonville. Addresses for these locations can be found at:

Based in Indianapolis, Overdose Lifeline is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals and communities affected by substance use disorder, and provides the boxes and Naloxone refills free of charge. Their goal is to place at least one box in every Indiana county, with more boxes in counties with higher overdose rates. LifeSpring Health Systems is the state designated community mental health center in eleven Southern Indiana counties and a Federally Qualified Health Center. LifeSpring serves more than 12,000 clients annually by providing a comprehensive spectrum of behavioral healthcare services. To learn more, visit LifeSpring’s website at
