OPEND Overdose Prevention Narcan Training

The Overdose Prevention Education and Naloxone Distribution (OPEND) Project through the HIV AIDS Education Prevention Project of Alameda County (HEPPAC) is a county-wide program aimed to address overdose death rates in our county and provide skills to community members in order to save lives. Overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the United States, but we know by equipping people with knowledge and naloxone (Narcan), these deaths are preventable and reversible. This training will cover a range of topics including the current opioid overdose context and trends, overdose prevention, overdose recognition and response, the use of naloxone, information about California Good Sam laws and more. Everyone who completes the training will walk away with their own Opioid Overdose Rescue Kit containing the life-saving medicine naloxone (Narcan) and the knowledge of how to use it.
