Get Naloxone Training Now!
In as little as 20 minutes, you can learn techniques to save the life of a loved-one, friend, co-worker, neighbor …anyone … who is experiencing an overdose caused by prescription narcotics or heroin. You can also find out where you can obtain the lifesaving, easy-to-use antidote, naloxone, as well as access relevant information and links on our website. After the training, check out what else we have to offer on our site.
As of August, 2018, over 70,000 individuals from all 50 States (and territories) have taken the trainings. They are still, however, underutilized by most States. States which have formally approved the trainings, disseminate information about them, and make our link (getnaloxonenow.org) available to residents (on the State and County DOH websites, treatment program websites, on lists of approved training programs, etc.) enroll more residents.
