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 intranasal naloxone—a prescription medication that is used to reverse an overdose. Due to limited seating, preregistration 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. View public service announcements on naloxone, stigma and the Good Samaritan Law. Find additional information and resources from the Maryland Department of Health.
