Naloxone Information Workshop

Picture of Naloxone kit

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 this 30-minute virtual information and training session on how to identify and respond to an overdose, including how to administer Naloxone, followed by a 15-minute Q&A. Information on how to obtain a free kit will be provided as part of this presentation.

Program is virtual only. Email with link to event will be sent out days before the program.

This program is also being livestreamed at the following branches: Beaverbrook, Carp, Elmvale Acres, Greely, North Gloucester, Sunnyside and Rideau.
