Overdose Prevention & Narcan Administration Workshop
Sat, February 10 '18 – Sat, February 10 '18
4pm – 6pm
Opioid overdoses are scary, potentially deadly, but also preventable. 83% of NYC's overdoses in 2016 involved an opioid, fentanyl (a super potent opioid) is often mixed with heroin and other drugs (including cocaine) and there's been a rise in fentanyl-related opioid deaths in NYC in the last five years.
Come learn how to spot an opioid overdose, how to administer naloxone (a drug that immediately reverses an opioid overdose) and some other harm reduction tips.
FREE ALL AGES WELCOME
