Would you know what to do if you encountered someone experiencing a toxic drug poisoning?
Join the Downtown Residents Association at the Yates Street Community Garden (1014 Yates St.) at 5:30 pm for a free 1-hour 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.
