Do you know how to help someone you suspect has overdosed on opioids?
Naloxone training will teach you:
Naloxone, sold under the brand name Narcan among others, is a medication used to reverse or reduce the effects of opioids. It is commonly used to counter decreased breathing in opioid overdose. The medicine can be administered by spraying it into a person’s nose. Naloxone is a temporary treatment and its effects do not last long. Therefore, it is critical to obtain medical intervention as soon as possible after administering/receiving naloxone.
