Lifesaving training for adults 18+.
At McCall we treat the whole person, which includes meeting our clients where they are at and providing the tools to keep them safe until they are ready for treatment. Having access to naloxone and knowing how to use it save lives. As part of our wider harm reduction efforts, we offer overdose prevention training to adults 18+, and professionals (law enforcement, teachers, behavioral health professionals, and more) in the communities we serve.
The training includes:
- A history of the opioid epidemic
- Understanding the role of harm reduction in minimizing the harmful effects of substance use
- Learning to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose
- How to administer naloxone (NARCAN), a lifesaving nasal spray that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose in two to five minutes and prevents death.
Virtual or in-person trainings are available upon request.
