In July 2017, Gov. John Carney signed a measure that made the opioid-reversing drug naloxone (commonly known by the brand name Narcan) available in Delaware pharmacies without a prescription.
First responders are trained to administer it in the case of an opioid overdose, but waiting on first responders can be fatal — the drug needs to be given within a specific window that can close while waiting for help. So it’s a good idea to have naloxone training in case of an opioid overdose emergency.
If you’ve been considering it, the City of Newark and atTAck Addiction will be holding a free Naloxone Community Training session on Oct. 9 from 6–9 p.m. at the Newark Senior Center, 200 White Chapel Dr., Newark.
No registration required. The first 75 attendees will receive a free naloxone kit.-30-
