Event description

Description

This Opioide Overdose Training Course is designed to be delivered to laypersons, including but not limited to individuals, families, groups/organizations, and community members.

What You Will Learn:
​You will acquire a foundational understanding of the opioid public health crisis and the contributing factors and solutions. You will also learn how to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose and how to administer the opioid overdose reversal drug Naloxone (NARCAN).

What is NARCAN?

Narcan is the brand name for naloxone, an opioid antagonist medication used to reverse the effects of opioid overdose. When somebody overdoses on an opioid drug like heroin or prescription painkillers, the drug depresses the respiratory and central nervous systems, disrupting breathing and potentially leading to death. This is a serious problem in the U.S. and many countries around the world: in 2013, of the almost 44,000 drug overdose deaths in the U.S., 37 percent (over 16,000) were due to opioid prescription medications.
