Opioid Overdose Prevention Training

Would you like to be able to save the life of someone who is overdosing on an opioid such as Oxycontin, Vicodin or heroin?   The Opioid Overdose Prevention Training Workshop is a skill-building program presented by staff from Southern Tier AIDS Program (STAP). The workshop is designed to help you in recognizing and preventing fatal opioid overdoses. Participants will learn basic information about harm reduction, signs of overdose, and how to administer naloxone in the case of an opioid overdose emergency. Participants who complete the training will receive an identification card that they can use to obtain a free naloxone kit at the STAP location in downtown Ithaca.
