Trainings

We are proud to have certified trainers on staff who are available upon request to educate the community in the following areas:

NARCAN-  "Narcan (naloxone) is an opioid antagonist used for the complete or partial reversal of opioid overdose, including respiratory depression. Narcan is also used for diagnosis of suspected or known acute opioid overdose and also for blood pressure support in septic shock. Narcan is available in generic form." (https://www.rxlist.com/narcan-side-effects-drug-center.htm)

These trainings are held on premises, or, our certified trainers can come to your location if you are organizing a companywide training. You and your co-workers could gain the training needed to possibly save a person who has suffered an overdose from using an opioid substance.

Lewis county NY continues to suffer from multiple overdose related deaths. We can help by receiving the right information and proper training to administer the dose (s) of Narcan.

Please continue to watch our website and our Facebook page for available classes in your area. 

 

Student Assistance Program  Prevention Counseling

The Student Assistance Program (SAP) is a nation-wide, school-based prevention/intervention program focusing on students in grades 6-12.

This program centers on all facets of a student's needs to determine the nature of a problem, its level of severity and whether to refer a student to a more intense level of service.
