Annunciation to offer free opioid awareness and Narcan training class

A free opioid awareness and Narcan training workshop will be offered at noon Sunday, Oct. 22, at the Church of the Annunciation, 7580 Clinton St., Elma.

The workshop is approximately two hours long and will focus on the opioid epidemic in Erie County today, signs and symptoms of an opioid overdose, the Good Samaritan Law, the use of Narcan (naloxone) to reverse an overdose and more. It is open to all, and those over 16 are eligible to receive a Narcan kit dependent on NYSDOH supply availability. All participants will also receive instructions on how to get Narcan at a pharmacy.

Water and coffee will be provided, and participants are invited to bring a brown bag lunch.

Registration is required. To register for the workshop, please call the Annunciation parish office at 683-5254 or email dkeenan.annunciation@gmail.com.

  1. Great article, I enjoyed reading your post on narcan. As a recovering addict, I know how helpful the drug can be, however, I do know that there are some people who are against it as it can be dangerous. I’ve been doing research on narcan addiction treatments and the pros and cons of this type of treatment.

    Should anyone else be interested to see how this would help others here’s the page I looked at https://oceanbreezerecovery.org/blog/treating-heroin-overdose-using-narcan/

    Hopefully, this information can assist someone (friends and families) in choosing the best recovery treatments.
