On April 5, 2018, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome M. Adams released a public health advisory urging Americans to carry
naloxone, a potentially lifesaving medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose within minutes.
Attend this 90-minute training to learn about naloxone and how to administer it. The Minnesota Department of Health encourages Minnesotans to have naloxone on hand for themselves, family members or anyone else at risk of an opioid overdose.
A limited number of free Naloxone kits will be available to take home at the end of the session. Anyone in Minnesota may get naloxone at a pharmacy without a prescription.
Who Should Attend: Community members, first responders, and providers interested in overdose prevention are invited to attend. If you are concerned that you, a loved one, or someone in your community is at risk for overdosing on heroin or prescription pain medication, this training is for you.
