LEGISLATOR KOPEL TO HOST NARCAN TRAINING/ OVERDOSE PREVENTION WORKSHOP
Tuesday, November 13, 2018 • 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Barry & Florence Friedberg JCC - 15 Neil Ct., Oceanside
You can save the life of a loved one from overdose!
Every day, at least one Long Islander dies from an opiate overdose. And those are only the ones we know of – the ones directly caused by heroin or prescription painkillers such as Percoset or Oxycodone. If you don’t think it can happen to someone you care about, please think again. Overdoses can happen to anyone.
Legislator Howard J. Kopel and Legislator Denise Ford are sponsoring this event in conjunction with the Nassau County Department of Human Services to teach residents what to do in case of an overdose and to help them learn how to administer the life-saving, overdose-reversal agent called Naloxone, or “NARCAN.” NARCAN is the antidote to an opioid overdose and all attendees will receive a free package.
