NY: Opioid Overdose Prevention - Build Your Skills & Knowledge - Get the SKOOP! Harm Reduction Coalition, 22 West 27th Street (5th Floor), New York NY 10001
*CASAC credits available for this course
Heroin and other Opioid overdoses are a common cause of death among users, yet these deaths are often preventable through education, mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, and when possible, through the administration of Naloxone (Narcan). In this workshop, participants will start by learning the essentials of preventing Opioid overdose deaths including prevention, recognition, and action. Participants will receive a certificate as a Trained Overdose Responder, and become qualified to train heroin or Opioid users and colleagues at their own facilities on how to prevent an overdose. Participants will learn how to implement a New York State Department of Health-approved program with support from the Harm Reduction Coalition.
