New York Offers Overdose Reversal Training to Civilians

Roger Neel/WNBF News

The New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services is offering training for civilians in administrating the opioid overdose reversal drug, Naloxone.

Over three dozen classes are being offered at a dozen OASAS addiction centers.

A majority of the centers are downstate with other sites located in Utica, Buffalo, Rochester, Seneca County, St. Lawrence County, Suffolk and Orange Counties.

On completing the class, participants will receive a free Naloxone rescue kit and will have the certification for administering the drug.

Governor Andrew Cuomo says the supervised training sessions will allow family members to supplement the abilities of first responders in dealing with the opioid addiction epidemic.

The listing of training dates and locations can be found at the OASAS website: www.oasas.ny.gov/atc/ATCherointraining.cmf.
