An overdose is a life-threatening medical emergency. Naloxone is a life-saving medication that can temporarily reverse the effects of an opioid overdose, while waiting for 911 to arrive. Being able to recognize the signs of an overdose quickly and having a naloxone kit can save a life.
Join Ottawa Public Health nurses for training on how to identify and respond to an overdose, including how to administer Naloxone. Free kits will be available to participants at the end of the session.
