Responding to an opioid overdose at home: administering naloxone, non-coercive aftercare, and radical love
Friday, August 14 at 5:00pm Eastern, Families for Sensible Drug Policy is privileged to join New Jersey Harm Reduction Coalition (NJHRC) co-directors Jenna Mellor and Caitlin O’Neil for an online overdose reversal training for families, followed by a discussion on harm reduction approaches to a caring for a loved one who uses drugs.
The event coincides with International Overdose Awareness Day, a global day of solidarity with friends around the world to spotlight a dialogue in love and remembrance, informed by harm reduction and human rights.
We will discuss non-coercive aftercare, advocating for your loved one’s right to health & dignity, and engaging in radical love. Participants can contact NJHRC after the training to request a naloxone kit and fentanyl test strip kit to be mailed to them via the NJHRC request line 1-877-4NARCAN.
