Naloxone (Narcan™) is an opiate antidote which reverses an opioid overdose in much the same manner as an EpiPen (epinephrine injection) reverses an allergic reaction. Opioids include heroin and prescription pain pills like OxyContin, Percocet, methadone, and Vicodin. When a person is overdosing from an opioid, their central nervous system and respiration system is depressed and breathing slows or stops. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioids and reverses the effects of an overdose.
• Ability to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose.
• Acquire knowledge of how to administer the opioid overdose reversal drug Naloxone.
• Understand the role of harm reduction in the overall opioid public health crisis solutions / action plan / strategy.
The Layperson Naloxone (NARCAN) training course is suitable for laypersons, including, but not limited to businesses, organizations, community members, correctional facilities, educators, faith groups, government and health care professionals, parents and caregivers, pharmacies, school nurses, senior living facilities, sober living communities, treatment and recovery centers, and more.
