Opioid Overdose Prevention and Training

Civic Hall

The Opioid Overdose Prevention Program at Educational Alliance Center for Recovery & Wellness is hosting an evening discussion on opioid overdose prevention at Civic Hall. Please join us for an educational discussion about opioid overdose prevention and Naloxone Kit training. The Surgeon General has released an advisory, the first one since 2005, stating that everyone should carry a Naloxone Kit in the situation they are able to save someone’s life if they are in an overdose. This is just one of the ways of curbing the opioid crisis that is affecting America today. Everyone attending the event will be trained and receive a Naloxone Kit FREE of charge to be used in the event of an opioid overdose.
