PREVENT OVERDOSE: Take a Narcan Class

One of the steps Berkeley County is taking in public and community awareness is the urge to the public to take the Narcan (Naloxone) Class. This class is an important step in the fight. For me taking the class helped me identify the signs of an overdose and what to do. More importantly I have the medication to offer that could possibly save a life should it ever arise.

Locally there are two classes held. Dr. John Aldis teaches a class at Callahan Counseling and at the Health Department.

The third Friday of the month (starting May 20th) there will be on at 6:00 at Callahan Counseling Services 1020 Winchester Ave. There is no need to sign up for this one. Callahan Counseling is located at 1020 Winchester Ave in Martinsburg, WV. This class starts at 6 PM.

The class will not be held every Friday now. They will now be held the first Friday of the month (starting May 6th) at the Martinsburg health department at 3:00. Whoever wants to attend needs to call the health department and sign up. This class is also given by Dr. John Aldis.

These classes are free to take to anyone interested. The only cost to you is the prescription for Narcan or Naloxone. Remember, the life you may learn to save, may be someone you love!

If you are interested in taking a class, Visit Narcan Training of the Eastern Panhandle for more information.
