Training topics will include:

  • education about the opiate issue and how it got started
  • how to identify opiate intoxication
  • how to identify an opiate overdose
  • how to respond to an opiate overdose
  • how to administer Naloxone

Learning how to spot an overdose is the first step in saving someone’s life. Overdose can happen whether using a prescribed medication or from illicit drug use. This is an issue for all ages.

Adults who attend the training will be offered a Naloxone kit to take with them, free of charge! (While supplies last.)
