Training

Families Against Narcotics offers FREE naloxone training sessions for community members interested in learning how to properly administer the medication. Each attendee will receive a FREE naloxone kit. Register Early! 

What Is Naloxone?

Naloxone is a medication called an "opioid antagonist" used to counter the effects of opioid overdose, for example a heroin overdose. Naloxone only functions if a person has opioids in their system; the medication has no effect if opioids are absent.

NARCAN® Nasal Spray is to be given right away and does not take the place of emergency medical care. Get emergency medical help right away after giving the first dose of NARCAN® Nasal Spray, even if the person wakes up because symptoms may return. Repeat doses may be necessary.

If your business or organization would like to host a training please fill out our presentation request form or contact FAN at 586-808-4999

"If I had this training years ago I could have saved a life. Being in recovery puts [you] in proximity to many who have died as a result of opioid overdose.

 

Just over 13 years ago was my first experience as a 'kid' (27 years old) that I sponsored overdosed on methadone, obtained from the street. This was his fourth overdose, and they couldn't revive him that time. As I left the hospital I received a call from his sister saying they took him off the ventilator. Jeff was a dear friend. Many others who I've gotten to know (though not as deeply) have left us this way.

 

Naloxone saved my ex-wife on more than 3 occasions but without my intervention, since I was not trained and did not have access to the drug. Now I am empowered! Now I don't have to watch hopelessly and wait for EMS to arrive if it happens again. Thank you so much!

--Tom W.
