Emergency Narcan Training In Response To Multiple Overdoses
In response to the large number of overdoses in Columbia County in the last 7 days, Columbia Pathways To Recovery, in cooperation with Project Safe Point, has scheduled its’ 2nd community Narcan training. We’ve learned there may have been as many as 15 overdoses and there were 2 that were fatalities. This training is open to all residents that would like to know how to administer Narcan to potentially reverse an opiate overdose and everyone that participates will receive a Narcan kit they can take home with them.
This narcan training has been scheduled for Wednesday July 5th 2017 at 7PM at Copake Town Hall, 230 Mountainview Road, Copake NY. The training is provided free of charge. People can sign up on the Columbia Pathways To Recovery Facebook or they can show up the night of the training. No advanced registration is necessary.
