In response to the Fentanyl crisis, Lethbridge ARCHES is providing Overdose Prevention and Take Home Naloxone training, which is a harm reduction initiative put forth by Alberta Health, in hopes to decrease the incidence of death by opioid overdose.
This training will provide you with the awareness of ARCHES services, harm reduction strategies, the skills to detect an overdose from an opioid, and how to respond in this emergency situation. The training will also provide you with a certification, which can be applied to a resume.
Naloxone kits will not be issued at the session, but will be made available at ARCHES for participants.
These sessions are open to members of the public, as well as Lethbridge College students and employees.
