The Wellness Center is hosting a free Narcan (Naloxone) training for members of the campus community who are concerned about opioid overdose. Our nurse, Susan Corbett, a credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counselor (CASAC) will conduct the session on Thursday, October 17 from 12 pm to 1 pm in the Gilman Center, located in the Middletown Campus Library.

  • Signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose
  • How to respond to an overdose
  • How to administer Naloxone
  • A review of the NYSDOH cost-saving program Naloxone Co-Payment Assistance Program (N-CAP)
  • How to identify participating pharmacies where New Yorkers can get Naloxone using their prescription coverage through their health insurance plan
  • The benefits of the New York State 911 Good Samaritan Law, including the importance of calling emergency medical services

Narcan kits which provide two life-saving doses will be available to participants.
