Naloxone Training: Overdose Prevention Forum

7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Suffern Free Library
Large Meeting Room

Event Details

Recently, Governor Cuomo and OASAS have expanded training sessions at various Addiction Treatment Centers (ATCs) throughout the state that will educate participants on opioid overdose prevention.

Participants will learn how to recognize an overdose, how to provide rescue breathing during an overdose and how to administer Naloxone. Upon completion of the training, participants will be able to administer Naloxone and will receive a free Naloxone rescue kit. These training sessions are free and open to the general public and first responders furthering the State's efforts to help those struggling with opioid and heroin addiction. 

Please also be aware that naloxone is used as an "opioid reversal medication".  That is the purpose for which we train the public to use it.  If someone is experiencing an overdose, Narcan (narloxone) can potentially reverse the effect of heroin or opioid overdose and prevent the person from dying. Due to the tremendous benefits and very low risks associated with Narcan, OASAS is currently working with the New York State Department of Health to ensure greater access in communities across New York State.
