On Wednesday, August 31, AARC conducted trainings for dozens of citizens of Knox, Indiana in the administration of Naloxone. 

Naloxone, also known as “Narcan”, is an opiate antidote which reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.  Opioid overdose deaths have increased over 70% over the last year with the rise of the drug “Fentanyl”.  Knox Citizens were trained in recognizing what an overdose looks like, what opioids are and how they affect the body, and the administration of Narcan nasal spray.

Jeff Comfort, Prevention Director, and Brian Mounts, Executive Director, facilitated the training. The training was funded in part through a grant from Porter-Starke Services and the Starke Taskforce for Overdose Prevention.
