Overdose Education and Naloxone Training Event
Learn How to Reverse an Opioid Overdose -
Do you or someone you know take opioid medications such as prescription painkillers like OxyContin, Vicodin, Percocet or other street drugs like heroin? An overdose does not have to be fatal. Naloxone (Narcan) can treat narcotic overdose in an emergency situation by countering the effects of opioid overdose and helps to restore slowed breathing or loss of consciousness, which saves lives while waiting for Emergency Services to arrive. It is not addictive and very safe to use.
All trainees will learn how to use Naloxone and anyone who pre-registers will receive a Free Complete Naloxone kit, there is also additional kits available for walk-ins as long as the supply lasts. Knowing how to use Naloxone and keeping it within reach can save a life.
Crook County Health Department in partnership with The Central Oregon Health Council will be holding two community Naloxone Trainings in Prineville, Oregon on Thursday, September 19th. The first class is at 12:30pm and the second class at 5:30pm at the Crook County Library, Broughton Room - 175 NW Meadow Lakes Dr. Prineville, OR 97754.
