MAYVILLE – Two free opioid overdose response trainings will be held this month, the Chautauqua County Department of Health and Human Services announced.
The sessions will be held at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 16 at Chautauqua Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Council, 501 West Third St., Suites 3 and 4, in the Sprinchorn Building in Jamestown and at 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 18 at the Mental Health Association in the Gateway Center, 31 Water St., No. 7 in Jamestown.
Each class is open to the public and will provide training to community members who wish to learn to respond to an opioid overdose by administering naloxone, also known as Narcan. The goal of the training is to prevent death and other negative consequences of opioid overdose by training nonmedical responders to recognize a suspected opioid overdose and to take appropriate action.
To register for the Feb. 16 training, call CASAC at (716) 664-3608. For the Feb. 18 training, call the Mental Health Association at (716) 661-9044.
