Naloxone for Opioid Overdose Training (Virtual)

Did you know there were over 81,000 drug overdose deaths in the United States in 2020? Also in 2020, Nevada was placed on “red alert” status by the National Drug Helpline due to an increase in opioid-related deaths.

NARCAN® (naloxone) is a medication designed to rapidly and safely reverse an opioid overdose. Developed for first responders, family, friends and caregivers, it is the first nasal formulation of naloxone for the treatment of opioid overdose that does not require specialized training.

To increase awareness about the life-saving medication, Partnership Carson City encourages everyone to join our monthly virtual naloxone trainings. Community Health Worker and Outreach Coordinator Diana Alonso will lead the trainings, which will last one hour and will be open for anyone to join. The trainings are on the third Thursday of every month and participants can join by checking our events calendar here.

For more information, please contact Diana Alonso at diana@partnershipcarsoncity.org.
