Saving Lives During an Opioid Epidemic

 

June 25, 2020



Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illegal drug heroin, as well as pain relievers available legally by prescription such as oxycodone (OxyContin), hydrocodone (Vicodin), codeine, morphine and many others.

Upon completion of the NARCAN training, participants will be given free NARCAN nasal spray and a resource packet to include brochures and crisis/support contact information.

Who can benefit from the training? Anyone in the public. This includes, but is not limited to, family members, friends, professionals and individuals who are at risk and/or in the presence of someone at risk for an opioid overdose.

NARCAN training will teach participants life saving strategies to prevent an overdose, how to recognize an overdose, and administration of NARCAN. NARCAN training can be done in as little as 10 minutes for individuals or a group.

To register, email or call Marsha Johnson at mljohnson@gchsd.org, (608) 558-6115, or Carlos Rivera at crivera@gchsd.org, (608) 426-0262.
