About the Event

Webster Health and Education Network (WHEN:DFCC) is pleased to present virtual Naloxone training for local residents through the Monroe County Office of Mental Health.

This 1-hour class prepares you to save the life of a suspected opioid/heroin overdose patient using a nasal spray. The overdose reversal kit will be sent to registrants upon completion of the training session, so your mailing address is required with registration. We recommend using a personal email address to register and receive the meeting link, as some business and school organizations block email content. All adult, Webster community members over 18 are welcome.

Naloxone is a prescription medicine that reverses an overdose and blocks the effects of opioids. When a person is overdosing on an opioid, they can experience over-sedation, breathing can slow down or stop, causing their heart to stop beating. Naloxone temporarily counteracts these life-threatening effects. The latest version of the overdose prevention kits contain a form of naloxone that can be sprayed into a person’s nose. There are no serious side effects, although the patient might experience opioid withdrawal symptoms upon waking. The American Medical Association and others have endorsed community-based, educational programs that distribute naloxone. 

While our coalition's primary goal is the prevention of chemical use, we recognize that Naloxone can offer people a critical second chance for recovery.
