• What: Narcan is an emergency anti-overdose treatment. It is a proven way to save the life of someone suffering the effects of an opioid overdose. That someone could be a loved one who has accidentally ingested too many of their pain pills, a child who got into their parent’s medicine cabinet, or the person sitting next to you at a community event. With the ongoing severity of the opioid crisis, concerned members of our community are being encouraged to carry Narcan and know how to use it. This free training will teach you how to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose and steps to stabilize and potentially revive an individual who has overdosed.
• Who: Anyone who takes prescription pain meds or has them in their medicine cabinet. Anyone who takes pain meds along with anti-anxiety meds such as Valium, Klonopin, or Xanax? Anyone who knows of someone who uses illicit substances such as heroin.
Register today: Mike Orrill, 719-221-5418 or email@example.com.
Participants will receive a free NARCAN kit.
Class size is limited to 20.
