Opioid Overdose Response Training


The Anne Arundel County Department of Health’s Adult Addiction Program is offering free training and a free naloxone kit  to community members on the use of intranasal naloxone, a prescription medicine to reverse an opioid overdose and prevent death. The training is for family members, friends and the associates of any individual who is using and at risk of overdosing on heroin or prescription pain medications. The training is also for treatment, recovery and transitional housing staff. Teens under 18 may take the training if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Training sessions will be held at sites in Anne Arundel County on the following dates:

  • Behavioral Health Building. 122 North Langley Road, Glen Burnie, MD 21060
