FREE COMMUNITY NARCAN/NALOXONE TRAINING FOR OPIOID OVERDOSE
Whether you are a professional working with at-risk individuals and users, a family member of a person addicted to opioids, or someone struggling with this addiction yourself, it will be helpful to know how to administer Narcan/Naloxone, an opioid antidote used to reverse overdoses.
The Evanston Public Library is presenting a program for community members to understand more about the opioid epidemic, opioid use and misuse, and signs that someone is overdosing. Participants will learn how to administer Narcan if they find someone experiencing an overdose and will receive information on how to obtain Narcan for free. The program will be held Monday, July 16, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the Evanston Public Library's Main Community Meeting Room.
