Opioid Overdose Response Training
Due to the recent cases of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Maryland, we are canceling our group events and meetings until further notice. This is being done to protect our patients, staff and visitors. We will announce on this page and on our Facebook and Instagram pages when classes will resume as normal.
To find out if a program has a virtual option, please contact the program coordinator or the Community Outreach department at 410-553-8103.
Thank you for your understanding.
The UM Baltimore Washington Medical Center is offering free opioid overdose response training with a free Narcan kit, the FDA-approved emergency nasal spray treatment, to community members who are 16 years old and older.
During the training participants will learn:
- Signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose
- How to administer Narcan nasal spray
- Overdose prevention tips
- Local resources for treatment and recovery services, family support and the Good Samaritan Law
Opioid response trainings are held several times per month. Registration is required, as class size is limited. Upon completion of the training, each participant will receive a Narcan kit containing two doses of nasal spray, a pocket face shield, gloves and a resource guide for assistance with substance abuse treatment.
