Narcan Training

Upcoming Community Narcan Training and distribution

The City of Fitchburg Health Department Substance Abuse Prevention and its Massachusetts Opioid Abuse Prevention Collaborative (MOAPC) are pleased to announce that Narcan Training and distribution will now be held on the third Tuesday of each month at 5:30 pm at Community Health Connections, Conference Room 1, 326 Nichols Road, Fitchburg.

Attendees will be instructed on how to recognize an opioid overdose and what to do if one occurs.  Narcan will be distributed by AIDS Project Worcester to those who enroll.

Narcan blocks the opioids and restores normal breathing when sprayed in the nose of someone who has overdosed.  It is safe, easy to administer and has no potential for abuse.

Upcoming dates:  February 19, March 19, April 16 and May 21
