This event includes resources to navigate a conversation with your loved ones and how to take practical steps to help reverse an overdose. Teaching community members how to administer Naloxone is a key component to reduce prescription drug misuse and abuse in Colorado by developing policies, programs, and partnerships with the many Colorado agencies, organizations, and community coalitions addressing one of the state’s major public health crises.
