First Aid for Opioid Overdoses

Fake Is Real HOPE Training

Do you know how to help someone you suspect has overdosed on opioids? This one hour course will provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to respond to a known or suspected opioid overdose emergency.

In this course, you will learn:

  • To recognize the signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose.
  • The appropriate care to provide based on the person’s breathing and level of responsiveness.
  • How to give naloxone using several different products — a nasal atomizer, Narcan ® Nasal Spray and EVZIO ® — to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose.

The H.O.P.E. NARCAN training course is suitable for laypersons, including, but not limited to: businesses, organizations, community members, correctional facilities, educators, faith groups, government and health care professionals, parents and caregivers, pharmacies, school nurses, senior living facilities, sober living communities, treatment and recovery centers, and more.  – you will gain the knowledge you need to respond to an opioid overdose emergency. Provision of Naloxone is not a substitute for emergency medical care but it can certainly help reverse the effects while medical care is on their way.

Carrying naloxone is the simplest way to help someone experiencing an overdose. We suggest keeping at least 2 doses next to your first aid kit and/or AED defibrillator.
