The sessions will train responders on how to reduce overdose risks, recognize signs of an overdose, access medical services, and administer Narcan Nasal Spray; in addition to taking other action (e.g., rescue breathing and contacting emergency medical assistance).
After being trained, each participant will be eligible to receive an overdose prevention kit, which includes instructions and a needle-free nasal spray filled with Naloxone Hydrochloride. Participants will also receive a toolkit booklet with resources and referral information pertaining to substance use disorder treatment.
