Wayside Youth & Family Services recently held a workshop for those interested in learning how to prevent drug overdoses from heroin and opiates, and how to administer and anti-overdose medication.
During the event held on May 19, attendees learned ways to help friends and loved ones avoid overdoses. They also were trained on how to use Narcan, a drug that can stop a person from overdosing.
The workshop follows a panel discussion about opioid addiction and how to get people into treatment, held at Watertown Middle School. (See more here).
