Join us for a talk about the current overdose crisis and learn how to administer life saving Naloxone. Naloxone kits will be available for free to those at risk of opioid overdose or to those at risk of witnessing an overdose, such as family and friends.

Fraser Health, in partnership with the Surrey School District and the City of Surrey Substance Use Awareness Team, will host four free overdose response workshops which will show participants how to recognize and respond to a potential overdose. Participants will learn about the various categories of drugs and their effects, and how to deliver life-saving measures (with and without Naloxone medication) in the event of a drug overdose. The workshops, which are open to the public and a mix of theory and practice, are suitable for anyone wanting to learn more about overdoses and naloxone.

The sessions will be facilitated by Erin Gibson, Fraser Health Harm Reduction Coordinator and Angela Matson, Fraser Health Clinical Nurse Educator. Also, Mark Goheen, Clinical Specialist, Mental Health & Substance Use Services will be the speaker for the following four sessions.
