Naloxone training available to public in Philadelphia

September 18, 2017 – If you haven’t been trained on administering a life-saving nasal spray for someone who is overdosing on opioids, the City of Philadelphia is beginning to host sessions this week

Malvern is also dedicated to community outreach and provides naloxone training at public forums. Our staff offers unrivaled knowledge on treating the disease of addiction, family roles and relationships in recovery, as well as Medicated Assistance Treatment (MAT).

The city’s Department of Behavioral Health and Intellectual disAbility Services expects the number of overdose deaths to be more than 1,200 in 2017, according to NewsWorks:

Beginning this week, the city is training the general public on how to use the overdose reversal drug naloxone to combat those growing numbers.

At four trainings, from now through the winter, health workers will teach hundreds of people how to administer naloxone, a drug that helps someone start breathing again during an overdose. It’s often administered by Narcan, a device that delivers the life-saving drug in a nasal spray.

If you or a loved one are living with addiction and have any questions about the Malvern Intervention Services or the Malvern 90-Day Model, please give us a call at 610.MALVERN (610.625.8376).
