Naloxone is a drug used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose and has become a powerful tool in combating this epidemic. In 2014, Pennsylvania legislators passed Act 139 allowing law enforcement and regular citizens to obtain and administer this life-saving drug but many areas of Pennsylvania remain largely unaware, untrained and/or unequipped.
Each Naloxone Education and Training Session will be approximately 60 minutes in length and will cover:
- An overview of the opioid epidemic
- Act 139 of the PA Legislature
- Naloxone administration to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose
