-Give the intranasal Naloxone
***Participants who complete the class will be given a Project DAWN Kit containing the Naloxone, instructions, and referral information.
Naloxone (Narcan) is a medication that can reverse an overdose from an opioid drug. It reverses the effects of opioids on the brain and restores breathing in order to prevent death.
