Good Samaritan Laws

Connecticut Good Samaritan Law

Since 2014 the state of Connecticut, via Public Act 14-61, has had a Good Samaritan Law in place to protect people who call 911 for emergency medical services and/or administer naloxone in an overdose situation from arrest for possession of drugs and/or paraphernalia.

The CT Good Samaritan law does not protect someone from other charges or stop the police from serving a search or arrest warrant if that was already in process.
