Want to learn about the Opioid Epidemic and understand how you can help? Sign up for one of our classes and get a free Narcan kit.

About this event

The Opioid Epidemic spanning our nation is impacting every community. People of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds are dying from an opioid overdose. Over 100,000 people died in the United States in the last year from an opioid overdose. You may be surprised to hear a lot of them did not even know they were using opioids.

Join our class and learn about the Opioid Epidemic, learn how it is impacting your community, learn about the addiction cycle and the physiological changes addiction has in a person's body, learn how Naloxone works to reverse an overdose, and learn how you can help save lives. Everyone will receive a Narcan kit at the end of the training and be taught how to use it.
