Narcan Training 8/11/17 7:00PM
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. The training will be held at Jefferson County Health Department on Friday, August 11, 2017 at 7:00PM. 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.
