On October 16 from 7 to 8 p.m., learn how to recognize the signs of an overdose, perform rescue breathing, and administer Narcan (Naloxone). Narcan blocks opioids and restores normal breathing when sprayed into the nose of someone who has overdosed on opiates. It is safe, easy to administer and has no potential for abuse. At the conclusion of the program, attendees can elect to receive two free doses of Narcan. The program is free and open to the community, with no pre-registration required.

The training will be held in the multipurpose room on the first floor of the Oak Glen Residence Hall at the University’s campus, 285 Old Westport Rd.
