Safe Harbor Training | Opioid Overdose Prevention and Response training , Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota - State Center, Wednesday, 18. September 2019

Training Description:
StreetWorks Outreach Workers embrace safety at every level of a young person's journey, which may include their substance use. We meet people where they are at and provide the supplies and tools necessary to help a youth make the safest decision for themselves. This training will prepare a youth worker with the skills to recognize the signs of an opioid overdose and how to respond with life-saving measures. We will cover what Narcan is and how it works in the body to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. We will also talk about safer use tips to pass along to people so they can be as safe as possible while using substances. This training will cover the methods of using nasal spray narcan, as well as intramuscular narcan.  
Together, we will learn ways to respond to an opiod overdose and save someone's life. 
Critical Points:
1. Narcan: How to use it and when to use it. 
2. Safer Use tips for people who are using substances.
3. Resources for ongoing support and connections
