Get ready for International Overdose Awareness Day (August 31) by equipping yourself with the knowledge on how to respond in the event of an opioid overdose. This presentation will show you the signs to recognize, how to respond with the overdose reversal drug naloxone, and some of the brain science behind why people develop a substance use disorder.

Presenter Andrea Hancock serves as a Regional Overdose Prevention Specialist in the Nashville area working under a program funded by TDMHSAS.  Register for this virtual training by emailing ahancock@starsnashville.org.

Naloxone is a key tool in reversing the rising tide of overdose and resulting deaths. Naloxone is the only antidote to reverse an opioid overdose, and it’s never been easier to use. This training is perfect for people at risk of opioid overdose, family and friends of those who are at risk of opioid overdose, and anyone interested in learning how they can save a life by reversing an overdose.
