How to reverse an opioid overdose and get a FREE Naloxone / Narcan® Kit.*
Thu, May 11, 2017, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM EDT
In response to an increased demand, GHHRC is offering free Opoid Overdose Prevention Training each week on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm. This training is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
Overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the U.S., and the majority of those deaths are from opioids like prescription painkillers and heroin. Naloxone is a safe, effective medication that, when given in time, can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. It has saved thousands of lives. If you or a loved one uses opioids, legal or illicit, you need this training!
All attendees will receive instruction on how to recognize the signs of overdose, what to do and what not to do in an overdose situation, how to administer Naloxone, and proper follow up procedures. Each attendee will also receive a free Opioid Overdose Prevention Kit*, which includes all the supplies needed to administer Naloxone.
Register here today for Training and an Overdose Prevention Kit*. Plan ahead and select the Thursday evening training that best fits your schedule.
*Free kits will be distributed as supplies are available.
