The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) is seeking hosts for free opioid overdose rescue training, now through September 2019.
According to OASAS, participants will “learn to recognize, respond to and reverse a suspected opioid overdose using naloxone (Narcan). Free overdose reversal kits containing naloxone are available at trainings for all first responders and for those with an immediate need. Participants will also learn how to obtain free or low-cost naloxone from a pharmacy using their insurance and the New York State Naloxone Co-Payment Assistance Program (N-CAP).”
Community groups and organizations interested in hosting may email Skip Zimmerman, Naxolone Training Coordinator, Skip.Zimmerman@oasas.ny.gov to schedule a training session.
