Community Narcan Training Taking Place Mar. 11 in Metuchen

On Monday, March 11, 2019 the Metuchen Municipal Alliance will sponsor a community education event for anyone looking to learn more about caring for someone at risk for a heroin or opioid overdose.

The event is 7 pm at the Metuchen Senior Center, 15 Center Street, and is limited to the first 30 people who arrive (first-come, first-served). Participants will receive free training about addiction and free Narcan® Nasal Spray Kits. Training is open to anyone who is at risk or knows someone who is at risk for a heroin or opioid overdose.

The session also includes information about substance use disorder. In New Jersey during the first nine months of 2018 there were nearly 2,200 opioid-related deaths, almost as many as in all of 2016. U.S. life expectancy has fallen as a result of the opioid epidemic.

Education will be provided on how to administer Narcan® (Nalaxone) to reverse a heroin or opioid overdose. The drug is used in order to buy enough time to get someone to an emergency room for further treatment, including rehabilitation services.

The Opioid Overdose Prevention Project is made possible by funding received from the New Jersey Governor’s Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (GCADA), the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the Middlesex County Office of Human Services, and JSAS HealthCare, Inc.  For information about setting up a Narcan training of your own, please call JSAS Healthcare at 732-988-8877.
