University Health Services and Recovery@UMB are hosting this overdose prevention training from Victory Programs. 
According to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health there were an estimated 1,526 opioid overdose deaths in 2015.  

Since 20​07, more than 3,200 people in Boston have received training on how to administer Narcan, a medication used to reverse opioid overdoses, and thousands more people have been educated on overdose prevention techniques. Narcan has been credited with reversing nearly 400 overdoses in Boston in recent years. Statewide, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health estimates that 2,000 lives have been saved due to Narcan. BPHC offers education and training to opioid users, their families and community partners that work with people at risk of overdosing. 

At this training, participants will learn about the importance of calling 9-1-1 in the event of an overdose, how to perform rescue breathing and administer nasal Narcan and treatment options to opioid users. For more information please contact Linda Dunphy, Director of UHS Health & Wellness Program.
