Overdose Prevention and Naloxone Training

Naloxone is a medication that temporarily reverses the symptoms of overdose by blocking the effect of opioids in the brain. It works on opioids such as heroin, fentanyl, morphine, methadone, oxycontin, percocet and many others. Naloxone is given by nasal spray and takes three to five minutes to work. It is safe, even if given by accident.

Individuals who are at risk for opioid overdose or know someone at risk, can get trained to give Naloxone.

Training is available at the following locations and times or call our Sexual Health Unit Intake Line for more information at 519-271-7600 extension 779.
