Description

Opioid Overdose Response Program

Learn How to Recognize & Respond to An Overdose Emergency - Your Efforts Matter!

Naloxone

Students leave with a prescription for naloxone that can be filled at any local pharmacy.

The ongoing opioid epidemic puts many lives at risk from overdose. Nation-wide, there have been about 250,000 opioid-related deaths since 1999. Most are unintended/accidental and occur outside of a medical setting.

Adventist HealthCare has partnered with the Maryland Department of Health to present community-based naloxone training as a part of the overall fight against the consistent increase in death rates.
