Learn how to administer Naloxone. The Lay Rescuer training is a 1.5 hour long training that covers: understanding opioids, how opioid overdoses happen, risk factors for opioid overdoses, and how to respond to an opioid overdose emergency with the administration of Naloxone. You will receive a medication disposal kit and Naloxone at the completion of the training.
Naloxone is a safe and effective medication that can reverse an overdose from opioids, including heroin. It is not just for people who are addicted. If you or a loved one are prescribed opioid painkillers, or are taking opioids, you should have Naloxone on hand.
