Want to learn more about the opioid crisis and how to save lives and prevent overdose deaths? Join NOWCastSA for the live webcast of Opioid Overdose Prevention Training at the San Antonio Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse (SACADA) Wednesday, July 20 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The free training is hosted by Texas Department of State Health Services and the Texas Overdose Naloxone Initiative (T.O.N.I.). Instructors Mark Kinzly and Charles Thibodeaux will teach attendees how to recognize, respond to and evaluate an opioid overdose and where to access Naloxone in the San Antonio area. Naloxone, also known as Narcan, is an overdose-reversal drug that is available over the counter in Texas, and does not require a prescription.
Thanks to the underwriting support of SACADA, anyone can watch the training live or replay the video later right here on this page.
