We are pleased to extend an invitation to attend the second of two Naloxone Training sessions being held at the Cathedral.
Naloxone is a medication that temporarily counters the effects of opioid overdose. The naloxone training is for any non-medically prepared individual, who might be in the position to respond to an opioid overdose. Training addresses prevention, recognition, and treatment of an opioid overdose, including administration of the opioid antidote, naloxone.
