Please join Four Corners Main Street and Codman Square NDC for a Free Narcan Training.
In the past year, Massachusetts communities have seen a spike in the number of nonfatal opioid overdose and deaths. Since 2007, more than 3,200 people in Boston have received training on how to administer Narcan, a medication sed to reverse and prevent opioid overdose. Narcan has been credited with reversing nearly 400 overdoses in Boston in recent years. Statewide, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health estimates that 2,000 lives have been saved due to Narcan.
At this training, which is conducted by the Boston Public Health Commission, participants will learn about the importance of calling 9-1-1 in the event of an overdose, how to perform rescue breathing and administer nasal Narcan and treatment options to opioid users.
