Opioid Overdose Response Training

The Baltimore County Department of Health is offering a free, two-hour training on how to recognize, prevent and respond to an opioid overdose by using intra-nasal naloxone (a prescription medication that is used to reverse an overdose). Due to limited seating, pre-registration is required.

Please note, overdose death rates involving fentanyl are rising at an alarming rate. Watch a video on the dangers of fentanyl and learn what to do before it's too late. Also view public service announcements on naloxone, stigma, and the Good Samaritan Law
