Take a Free Overdose Awareness & Narcan Training during National Prevention Week!
Do you know how to help someone who has overdosed on opioids?
Even in the last ten years, this question has become more and more important. 2019 marked the beginning of a "fourth wave" of the opioid crisis. Xylazine, Gabapentin, and other emerging substances are compounding the effects of opioid overdoses. Meanwhile, counterfeit medications mean that almost anyone can unknowingly take prescription drugs laced with fentanyl.
It's more likely than ever that you'll come across somebody having a lethal opioid overdose. Come to our Overdose Awareness and Narcan Training to learn how to be a Good Samaritan!
Stop by for a free one-hour presentation about current drug risks, recognizing a possible overdose, and how to administer Narcan(TM) to save a life. Educate yourself on prevention & treatment messages to protect yourselves and loved ones from the opioid crisis. Most importantly, attendees will receive a free Narcan kit!
