Training on drug to reverse overdoses
Do you or someone you know take opioids, prescription painkillers like OxyContin, Vicodin or other street drugs like heroin?
An overdose does not have to be fatal. Naloxone reverses an overdose and restores breathing until emergency services arrive. It is not addictive and very safe.
The Central Oregon Health Council in partnership with Bend Treatment Center and Max's Mission will be holding a community naloxone training in Madras on Thursday, May 3, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Sahalee Park, at B and Seventh streets.
Drop-in training will occur on a rotating schedule every 15 minutes or as needed. All trainees will learn how to use naloxone and receive a free complete naloxone kit. Knowing how to use naloxone and keeping it within reach can save a life. Food will be provided.
