Free NARCAN® Training for Belmont residents will take place on Thursday, Jan. 18 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Belmont Public Library’s Assembly Room. This training is sponsored by the Belmont Substance Use Coalition.
If you, or someone you love, has been prescribed an opioid, such as oxycodone (Oxycontin, Percoset), hydrocodone (Vicodin), or hydromorphone (Dilaudid), or if you know someone who struggles with opioid addiction, come get trained on the use of this life-saving medication.
NARCAN® (naloxone HCl) is a nasal form of naloxone, approved by the FDA for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose – it counteracts the life-threatening effects of the overdose. Since most accidental overdoses occur in a home setting, it was developed for use by first respondents, as well as family, friends, and caregivers.
Space at this free training is limited to 25 people, so reserve your spot now, by sending an email request to: Lisa_Gibalerio@WaysideYouth.org.
