Naloxone Training Available

December 17, 2018


Through a grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, Evangelical Community Hospital can provide you or your organization with the necessary training to help in the event of an opioid overdose.

Community Health and Wellness staff train individuals to have lifesaving skills in place in the event of an overdose. During the training you will learn what an opioid is, how to recognize signs and symptoms of an overdose, and how to administer Naloxone, also known as Narcan. These skills can assist in keeping an individual alive until emergency help can arrive. Once trained, participants will receive a free Naloxone kit.

For more information or to schedule a training, contact Evangelical Community Health and Wellness at 570-768-3200.
