The Counseling Center at Duluth, GA Hosts:
Free Naloxone Training

Learn how to prevent overdose from heroin and prescription pain pills using Naloxone in an opioid overdose emergency.

TWO Free Naloxone kits will be available to all attendees.

About Naloxone and Narcan Prevention

Naloxone (commonly known as Narcan) can reverse the effects of opiates almost immediately when administered. This free training will provide detailed information about Naloxone, including how and when it can be properly used to reverse an overdose. The training will also address the rights and responsibilities of those who utilize Naloxone kits in emergencies.

Anthony Quattrocchi, Community Business Development Representative, has arranged this training provided by Georgia Overdose Prevention, the pioneers of the Georgia 911 Medical Amnesty Law. This law protects people who call 911 and seek medical assistance for someone experiencing a drug or alcohol-related overdose. The caller and the victim cannot be arrested, charged, or prosecuted for small amounts of drugs, alcohol, or drug paraphernalia if the evidence was obtained as a result of seeking medical assistance.

Anthony will be available during the training to answer questions about addiction disorders, treatment options, and how to better understand the role of Naloxone in addiction and addiction treatment.

Learn more at the training on August 11th.
