Learn how to administer Naloxone

About this Event

Here you will learn how to administer the Overdose reversal drug Naloxone, but first some facts

In just 12 hours last week we had 6 Overdose deaths in Kokomo IN (just 2 hrs away) . Indiana has consistently placed in the top half of U.S. states and territories for the highest drug overdose death rate since 2013 and consistently has a higher overdose death rate than the U.S. average.

In 2017 we lost 1800 Hoosiers or 5 a day its only getting worse, its TIME.

Drug overdose deaths in Indiana have been on the rise for almost two decades, with a loss of more than 15,000 Hoosiers due to drug overdoses since 1999. In 2017. Indiana reached its highest age-adjusted drug overdose rate at 29.4 per 100,000, a statistically significant 22% increase from 2016. The Indiana 2017 rate was also statistically higher than the national rate of 21.7 per 100,000. From 2016-2017, Indiana had the third-highest drug overdose rate increase in the nation behind only New Jersey (29%) and Nebraska (26%)1. In 2017, there were over 1,800 drug overdose deaths in Indiana averaging to five Hoosiers a day.

The primary driver of overdose deaths is opioids as three out of the five Hoosiers who died from an overdose each day involved an opioid.

Please do not think twice, we are not immune, and I care that you attend. Addiction does not see color, creed, ethnicity, nor does care of your social status or what school or Church you attend . I understand that we are all busy... I get it honestly I do and I also understand that 2 hrs is a big chunk out of your day and maybe a little tough to plan for. Let me promise you this (from experience) planning a funeral is a whole lot harder and the piece you could loose is a whole lot bigger.....

Please register now, see you there
