In collaboration with St John Ambulance’s, DrinkSmart is hosting an open Opioid Poisoning Response Training Program (OPRT) provides a trauma-informed and de-stigmatized approach to opioid poisoning awareness. The program consists of a 120-minute course delivered in a virtual classroom, which includes information on:

• Stigma & Harm Reduction
• How to respond to an opioid poisoning
• How to administer nasal Naloxone
• Self-Care after a Traumatic Event

Participants who complete the course will receive nasal naloxone to use in an emergency situation. Naloxone is a medicine that rapidly reverses the effects of opioids on the brain. It is an important tool that can save the life of someone experiencing an opioid poisoning.

The overdose epidemic is everyone's problem, but it's being left to a small group to step up.
