Carry Naloxone to Save a Life (Jun)

Free

with Nick St. Louis

Calendar Jun 3, 2024 at 5 pm, runs for 1 week

Naloxone, also known as Narcan, is drug that blocks the absorption of opioids in the brain at the receptor-level. Opioids effect our respiration, which is why someone suffering from an overdose may stop breathing. By blocking opioid absorption, naloxone pauses its effects in the body. AMHC OPTIONS provides free Narcan (naloxone) kits and training to those who want it, and an increasing number of other public health organizations and health providers are doing the same.  Join this training to receive a kit and learn more about it.  This is an in-person class. 

Nick St. Louis of AMHC and the OPTIONS Initiative, works with local law enforcement and EMS agencies to support folks who are still using drugs and provide them with appropriate resources and referrals. He supports these folks by developing trusting relationships that open a continued dialogue that will, hopefully, end with the person entering recovery, however that looks for them.  He also educates the public on harm reduction, trains folks about Narcan and how to use it, and about Maine’s Good Samaritan Law.  Nick is in long-term recovery himself and is a strong advocate for the use of MOUD and harm reduction methods. “We need to keep people alive so that they can enter recovery when they’re ready. Dead people cannot recover.”  Contact Nick by email at nstlouis@amhc.org.
