Portland, ME

Westbrook Partners for Prevention has distributed 10 opioid overdose emergency toolkits called ONEboxes throughout the city.


“If you look in places around Westbrook, you may notice some new purple-labeled boxes around the city. These are ONEboxes and they are designed to save lives,” a press release from the group said.

The boxes contain two doses of intranasal naloxone and written instructions for how bystanders can respond to an overdose. A QR code links to video instructions. The boxes also have a CPR mask, gloves and wipes.


Kits are available at the community center, middle school, high school, performing arts center, Walker Memorial Library, Super 8 Motel, Westbrook Regional Vocation Center, First Baptist Church, Westbrook-Warren Congregational Church and City Hall.


The ONEbox is distributed by the West Virginia Drug Intervention Institute, a nonprofit in Charleston, West Virginia.


Each box costs $199 and was funded with the city’s opioid settlement funds
