Thursday October 27th
5:30 – 7:00 pm
In 2015, people in Jefferson County died from drug overdose at a rate of more than one a month, with no evidence rates have slowed significantly this year. Some of those deaths were preventable, had the individual been given the opioid overdose drug called naloxone, or Narcan. Please come to a free, community-wide training on how to administer Narcan nasal spray to an overdose victim. Participants will receive a certification of their training, and a prescription for Narcan nasal spray. When filled at a local pharmacy, Narcan is paid for in full by WV Medicaid.
The training will be Thursday October 27th from 5:30 – 7:00 pm, and will take place at Jefferson County Community Ministries, 238 W Washington St, Charles Town. If you are interested in attending, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your space.
