FREE Opioid Overdose Response Training

The Anne Arundel County Department of Health’s Adult Addiction Program is offering free training and certification to community members on the use of intranasal naloxone to reverse an opioid overdose and prevent death. Once certified, trainees will receive a prescription for a naloxone kit to administer to victims of opioid overdose. The prescription for the kit can be filled at certain local pharmacies.

Who Should Attend?

  • Family members, friends and associates of someone who is using and at risk for overdosing on heroin or prescription pain medications. Only participants 18 and older can become certified. Teens under 18 may take the training if accompanied by a parent or guardian; however, minors are not eligible for certification.
  • Treatment program, recovery services and transitional housing staff.

What Will I Learn?

Training will incorporate the following information:

  • What an opioid is.
  • How to recognize, respond to and prevent an opioid overdose.
  • How to administer the naloxone intranasally.
