Naloxone Training Registration
The University of Maryland Health Center is designated as an Overdose Response Program (ORP) through the Maryland Department of Health. As part of this designation, we offer overdose response resources to the UMD community, free of charge.
One of the most popular resources we offer is Naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal medication. Similarly to how an EpiPen temporarily blocks the life-threatening symptoms of an allergic reaction (i.e. inability to breathe) while emergency medical assistance arrives, Naloxone offers a similar kind of temporary support for those experiencing an opioid overdose.
To get your free Naloxone through the Health Center, all you have to do is attend a brief training, which goes over how to recognize signs of an opioid overdose, instructions for using Naloxone, and what to do as emergency medical assistance makes its way to you and the person in crisis.
Trainings are all offered in the Sahet Room of the Health Center, just past the main entrance to the building, and are free to any UMD community member interested in attending! Registration is required for attendance.
