Naloxone is a medication commonly used to reverse opioid overdose. It is used nationally by clinicians to save the lives of people overdosing from opiates and is on the World Health Organization’s list of essential medicines. There are no side effects, and with the proper training is easy to administer.
Being prepared to respond to a drug-related emergency is the difference between life and death. We teach you how to recognize the signs and symptoms of overdose as well as how to respond if an opioid overdose is occurring.
Knowing how to respond to an overdose means you are more likely to act and save a life when the time comes. Learning this form of intervention also fosters an environment of safety, whether in a public or a workplace setting. Training gives critical knowledge and confidence to effectively manage an emergency without fear or confusion.
We have a solution to prevent opioid overdose death: train people to respond and intervene. We do this by participating in community events, working with government organizations, private companies and those affected by opioid overdose.
