About the Layperson Naloxone Course


"This training gave a great overview of opioids and their affects on the body. It also allows the participant the ability to learn about recovery practices and not just the addiction side, which I thought was excellent! The training also taught about naloxone, reasons for its use, history and how to administer."

"Very helpful to learn the signs and symptoms of overdose and methods of delivering treatment. Resources for overdose prevention and treatment."
