Montgomery County to offer free training on Naloxone

 

This announcement was provided by Joseph Corona, the Community Outreach Coordinator for Montgomery County, Maryland.

 

Residents concerned about a friend or family member with an opioid addiction are invited to attend a free training to learn about reducing unintentional and life-threatening opioid overdoses with the use of Naloxone, a prescription medication that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.

The two-hour trainings will be offered:

Tuesday, June 5, 1 to 3 p.m. Department of Health and Human Services 401 Hungerford Drive, 1st floor conference room, Rockville

Tuesday, June 12, 10 a.m. to 12 noon Westfield South Building 11002 Veirs Mill Road, 7th floor conference room, Wheaton

Tuesday, June 26, 5 to 7 p.m. Department of Health and Human Services 401 Hungerford Drive, 1st floor conference room, Rockville

Participants who complete the training will receive a free Naloxone kit. Tips on overdose prevention and resources detailing local and national resources will be provided. The training is free, but registration is required. Capacity for these classes is limited. CERT members can register via CERVIS instead of contacting DHHS.

Others can register by email at OverdoseResponseProgram@montgomerycountymd.gov or call 240-777-1836.
