Learn How to Administer Narcan Sept. 26

Learn How to Administer Narcan Sept. 26

O+ in partnership with Samadhi will offer trainings in how to administer Narcan, which temporarily reverses the effects of opioid medicines, on Saturday, Sept. 26 at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. in the backyard of the O+ offices in midtown Kingston.

During this short, yet in-depth training (which will take place outdoors) participants will learn how to recognize the signs and symptoms of opioid overdose and how to administer Narcan (naloxone).

Participants will receive a Narcan nasal spray kit to always carry with them in case of an opioid overdose.

Why should one attend a Narcan training? Opioid-related deaths in Ulster County increased 171% in 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. This is a public health crisis and we all should do what we can to help.

Register via Eventbrite for a 2 p.m. training or a 3 p.m. training. The address of the O+ office is on the Eventbrite.

Attendees are asked to wear a mask, BYO chair or blanket, and adhere to 6-foot social distancing.

For those who can’t attend the Sept. 26 in-person training, O+ and Samadhi are offering an online training via Zoom on Wednesday, Sept. 30.

Thanks to Ulster Savings Bank for sponsoring Narcan trainings for the community.
