Accidental overdose has reached epidemic proportions. This tragedy has only been exacerbated by the isolation necessary for COVID-19 quarantine and lockdown restrictions.
As a Jewish community, we feel it is our obligation to start the conversation, and begin helping the lives that are being destroyed due to substance use.
Statistics show us that in the next several years it is likely someone in your inner circle will be affected by an overdose situation. How will you recognize the signs? Who will you discuss this with? If you are concerned who will you turn to for help. We will answer these questions and more during our panel discussion.
Narcan is a life saving antidote for an opioid overdose and you can do no harm administering Narcan. There is now a law allowing non-clinical personnel to administer Narcan without any liability. Narcan will be distributed by Project Opioid at the event at NO CHARGE. For those on Zoom the free doses can be attained through their website at Projectopioid.org.
