Overdose Prevention Trainings

  • Lower East Side Harm Reduction Center 25 Allen Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

The Alliance is bringing awareness to overdose prevention ahead of International Overdose Awareness Day on Thursday, August 31. In 2016, New York City had 1,374 confirmed overdose deaths - a 46% increase from 2015. The Alliance is working to prevent future overdoses by offering free Naloxone training at the Lower East Side Harm Reduction Center (LESHRC).

Naloxone is a medication that reverses overdoses from opioids such as heroin and prescription painkillers. New Yorkers can get this free life-saving medication without prescription at many community-based organizations including LESHRC.

Free trainings on how to use Naloxone will be held at the Lower East Side Harm Reduction Center (25 Allen Street) at the following times:

  • Saturday 8/12, 1:15 PM
  • Tuesday 8/15, 6 PM
  • Thursday 8/31, 2:30 PM

Trainings last approximately 45 minutes to an hour.

If you are interested in being trained, but cannot attend one of the times above, please call 212-226-6333 to make an appointment.
