The class also instructs attendees on how to administer Naloxone (also known as Narcan) to someone they believe is suffering from an opioid overdose. Naloxone is an FDA-approved nasal form spray that can be used for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose. Class attendees will also learn how to respond after administering Naloxone, tips to prevent overdose and community resources for family and friends.
