Fond du Lac County Community Narcan Trainings
Fond du Lac County Health Department offers Narcan trainings as part of its efforts to reduce the negative impact of opioids in the county. Narcan trainings are for anyone who is affected by opioid use, including individuals who use opioids, friends and family members of individuals who use opioids, and people who work with individuals who use opioids. In 2020 (the most recent statistic available), there were 1,227 deaths in Wisconsin due to opioids. This is an increase from 916 deaths from opioids in 2019.
At the training individuals will learn how to respond and safely use Narcan, a medication that can reverse an opioid overdose that may occur if using heroin or prescription pain medication. At the training you will receive a free Narcan Kit, which includes two doses of nasal Narcan. The Narcan training is a non-judgmental environment where community members can remain anonymous.
