On Wednesday, October 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. there will be a free ‘open’ Take Home Naloxone Training session at the Aldergrove Vineyard church.
We will have individuals on site to talk to educate and train people in how to use Naloxone to prevent opioid overdoses. As part of the training individuals will learn about overdose prevention, how to recognize an opioid overdose, what to do in case of an opiod overdose and how to administer Naloxone to someone who is overdosing on opioids.
Anyone that has questions about this training session can contact the Starting Point Homelessness Services office at 604-530-6477 (20626 Eastleigh Crescent).
