The Anne Arundel County Department of Health’s Adult Addiction Program is offering community members free training on the use of intranasal naloxone, a prescription medicine to reverse an opioid overdose and prevent death. The training is for at-risk individuals, family members, friends, and the associates of any individual who is using and at risk of overdosing on heroin or prescription pain medications. The training is also for anyone who works with the public and is recommended for treatment, recovery and transitional housing staff. Teens under 18 may take the training if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

After completing the training, participants will receive a free kit that contains naloxone to administer to victims of an opioid overdose. Naloxone cannot be used to get high and is not addictive.

To register and for more information, call the naloxone training line at 410-222-1937, Monday through Friday between 8:00am and 4:30pm.
