Naloxone/Narcan Trainings in Camden County (November 2015)

Do you know someone who is at risk for a heroin/opioid overdose?

The Overdose Prevention Act now allows doctors the ability to prescribe the opiate antidote Narcan® (naloxone) to those in a position to help someone else during an overdose of heroin or other opioids. The law also eliminates civil and criminal liability to anyone who administers naloxone.

Free trainings and education on how to administer naloxone to reverse a heroin/opioid overdose will be provided in Camden County. Participants who successfully complete the training will receive a free naloxone kit.

All trainings will be provided by credentialed addiction counselors and licensed nurses in a small, confidential setting to allow participants to receive “hands on” training. Trainings will be limited to 20 participants on a pre-registration basis and are open to the public. TO REGISTER, CALL URBAN TREATMENT ASSOCIATES, INC AT (856) 225-0505

Trainings Include:

  • Addiction education and treatment options
  • Overdose prevention techniques
  • Signs and symptoms of overdose
  • Steps to take when an overdose occurs
  • Rescue breathing
  • How to administer naloxone, self-help, family support, and other important resource information

TRAINING DATES
All trainings sessions are from 6 pm – 8 pm. Information regarding treatment options will be available at the trainings.
