Free Narcan training

Amy Hill, Opioid Outreach Specialist with Snohomish County Human Services, will teach attendees how to administer Narcan (naloxone), a drug that can block the effects of an opioid overdose. The program will be at 6 p.m. March 26 in the Everett Public Library auditorium, 2702 Hoyt Ave. Reservations are not required, but space is limited.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that the U.S. programs for drug users and their caregivers prescribing take-home doses of naloxone and training on its use have prevented 10,000 opioid overdose deaths.

The training will also include information about what opioids and opiates are, how they affect our bodies, who is at risk for overdose, what an opioid overdose looks like, and what the antidote to an opiate overdose is.
