This virtual training will teach you how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose. We’ll show you how to perform rescue breathing and administer Naloxone (commonly known as Narcan) in the event of an overdose. We’ll talk about how to prepare for this situation and what to do after. At the end of the training, we’ll connect you with resources to get Naloxone. The training will run for 30 minutes, followed by 30 minutes of optional discussion with the facilitator.
You're not alone in this process. Meet and learn from other who've been there themselves.
All groups are moderated by trained healthcare providers, so you can trust the information being shared.

Skip the church basement and meet from the comfort of your couch at home.

When I started working in healthcare as a cardiac nurse I saw the widespread effects of addiction. Since, I’ve dedicated my career to helping people overcome substance use disorders. I use a compassionate and supportive approach along with the top medical interventions. The approach I take with clients has been influenced by my experience at the bedside as a clinical care nurse and my training as a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner. This enables me to support clients in their overall health as well as their behavioral health. In addition to being able to prescribe and manage general medications, I hold a waiver to treat clients with opioid use disorder using buprenorphine. I focus on treating the whole person, not just on substance use.
