Free Narcan Training – Hamden
May 13, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm Free
Opioids, like heroin and prescription drugs, can cause a person to stop breathing. Narcan (also known as Naloxone) temporarily reverses an opioid overdose allowing time to get medical attention. Narcan is easily administered as a nasal spray.
This training will discuss:
What an overdose is, the current opioid crisis, how to prevent an overdose, signs and symptoms of an overdose, how to administer Narcan, current protective legislation and local resources.
Presented by: Colette Kroop & Jaime Bochenek, Prevention Corps members. Light refreshments will be provided.
Please RSVP and tell us if you require Narcan distributed to you at the training (please only request if you are unable to get it elsewhere). Colette Kroop – colettekroop@hamden.
Parking for this training will be in the George Street Lot.
