The Overdose Prevention Act now allows doctors the ability to prescribe the opiate antidote
Narcan ® (naloxone) to those in a position to help someone else during an overdose of heroin or other opioids.  The law also eliminates civil and criminal liability to anyone who administers naloxone.

Free trainings and education on how to administer naloxone to reverse a heroin/opioid overdose will be provided in Monmouth and Ocean counties. 

Training is open to anyone who is at risk of an opioid overdose or their family and friends. All eligible participants will receive a FREE Narcan® (naloxone) kit and a treatment voucher for 30 days of free substance abuse treatment to use or distribute to any person that needs medication-assisted treatment.  In addition, education will be provided on how to administer Narcan® (naloxone) to reverse a heroin/opioid overdose. 

Trainings will be in a small, confidential setting, and participants will receive “hands on” training.   Trainings may be limited on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Trainings will be approximately 1 hour.
