Community Naloxone Training

Location: 
Kickstand, 1739 Venables Street
Date: 
Thursday, December 7, 2017 - 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Kickstand will be hosting a naloxone training night for volunteers and community members. This event will be faciliated by Karmik!

Naloxone is a drug which blocks the effects of opiates/opioids, such as fentanyl. Opioids are being found in a wide range of drugs. If you are a drug user, know a drug user, or frequently come into contact with drug users (including cocaine, MDMA, heroin etc. users), it is recommended that you have a naloxone kit on you, and receive the training necessary to use it.

All participants will leave with a kit and knowledge necessary to use it. RSVP required so we order enough kits for everyone. 

Sign up BY November 25 here: https://goo.gl/forms/hJ2mcyEEEERnu6U43

This event is FREE for active Kickstand volunteers. We ask that everyone else pay a $10 donation that will go towards supporting Karmik. If paying $10 is not an option at this time, let us know in the sign up form. We will not turn anyone away for lack of funds.
