Working Together to Reduce Opioid Overdose and Drug-Related Deaths
Let's Get Real of Huron County has partnered with Project DAWN (Deaths Avoid With Naloxone) to provide training and free naloxone kits at their walk in peer center located at 2 Oak Street in Norwalk. A prescription is not necessary to receive training or to pick up the medication.
Who should pick up a kit?
Anyone can pick up a kit and get trained. Whether you are caring for a patient that uses opioids to manage pain or know someone with an opioid addiction, getting trained and picking up a kit can help save a life.
What training will I receive?
When you stop at the peer center, a peer supporter will have you fill out a form, provide written training instructions and the medication kit.
You will be trained on:
• Recognizing the signs and symptoms of overdose
• Performing rescue breathing
• Calling 911
• Administering intranasal naloxone
