Would you know what to do if you encountered someone experiencing a toxic drug poisoning?
Join the Downtown Residents Association for a free workshop that could help you save a life. We will talk about some of the misconceptions related to the toxic overdose crisis and stigma surrounding the issue. Our instructor will then go over the steps involved in administering Naloxone and participants will have a chance to practice.
Wednesday, May 24th - 7 to 8 pm - theDock (722 Cormorant Street, 3rd Floor)
