CANCELLED Overdose Prevention Education and Naloxone Distribution
This program has been cancelled in order to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Our apologies.
Learn how to use Naloxone to save lives, and receive two free doses.
Overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States, but we know by equipping people with knowledge and naloxone (Narcan), these deaths are preventable and reversible. This training will cover a range of topics including the current opioid overdose context and trends, overdose prevention, overdose recognition and response, the use of naloxone, information about California Good Samaritan laws and more. Training will also distribute some Opioid Overdose Rescue Kits containing the life-saving medicine naloxone (Narcan).
Registration is appreciated but not required - we are just trying to get a count to know how many kits to have available. You can register under a fake name if you'd like to preserve your anonymity.
Training is conducted by the Overdose Prevention Education and Naloxone Distribution (OPEND) Project through the HIV Education and Prevention Project of Alameda County (HEPPAC). OPEND is a county-wide program aimed to address overdose death rates in our county and provide skills to community members in order to save lives.
