Course Description:  We will present an overview of the current opioid overdose epidemic nationally and locally, and explain how naloxone can be used to save a life in the event of an overdose emergency. We will teach potential lay responders how naloxone works and train them on how to prevent, recognize, and intervene in an overdose emergency using naloxone. We will provide critical information on who is most at risk, the importance of aftercare, the specific provisions of New York State’s Good Samaritan Law, and how to report an overdose reversal. Each person will be provided with a naloxone kit free of charge. Each trainee will also have the opportunity to handle the device and demonstrate competency in its use.
 

Prerequisite:  None.  All are welcome
