Overdose preparedness through Narcan training

At the Jamie Daniels Foundation we are guided by the belief that one life lost is one life too many. As part of that mission, we are passionate about equipping families, friends, teachers, and community members with the ability to administer Narcan should they be faced with saving a life during an opioid overdose emergency.

In June we partnered with Alliance of Coalitions, and many other organizations, in promoting the free training in the use of Naloxone (also known by the brand name, Narcan®) a prescription drug that temporarily blocks opioid receptors in one’s body in order to reverse an opioid overdose until first responders arrive.

The training includes information on:

  • Signs & symptoms of an opioid overdose
  • Quick actions to take to help save a life and reverse a potential opioid overdose
  • How to easily and properly use Narcan nasal spray
  • Resource sharing
  • If you use your Narcan, how can you obtain a refill

This past month, more than 70 people were trained in a single session, including the Jamie Daniels Foundation new Executive Director, Chris Perry, “I found the class straightforward and essential. It means a loved one or friend can learn about overdose prevention and administer help even before medical help arrives”.

This interactive class, presented by a Certified Narcan & CPR Trained instructor from the Alliance, takes only 1 hour and a Save A Life Narcan Kit will be mailed directly to you once essential forms have been completed.
