Free sessions will take place monthly
The Dutchess County Department of Behavioral & Community Health will offer free monthly training throughout the year on how to use the opiate antidote naloxone (Narcan) to revive victims of overdoses. Each participant will receive a Narcan kit.
Last year, DBCH staff trained 1,800 people.
The walk-in, hour-long sessions will be offered on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 4:30 p.m. at 230 North Road in Poughkeepsie, beginning Jan. 23. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The county’s Stabilization Center, also at 230 North Road, offers training at any time.
