Virtual Naxalone Training is Coming to Carleton

Naloxone is a potentially life saving treatment that can temporarily reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) has collaborated with NaloxoneCare owner Mark Barnes to provide live virtual Naloxone training to Carleton students and staff. If you want to take part in this training, please register on the Carleton Wellness website and you will receive an email with the link to the training session that you have chosen.

The training sessions are being offered on October 22, 10:00am-11:30am EDT, November 19, 1pm-2:30pm EDTJanuary 28, 10am-11:30am EDT and April 8, 1:30pm-3pm EDT.

If you can not attend any of these training sessions, you can visit the NaloxoneCare website to take a self-guided free training session and even receive a free kit if requested and also are an Ontario resident. Through the Ontario Naloxone Program, you can get a free Naloxone kit at participating pharmacies and health centres.

If you need help, know that you are not alone and that there are many resources available to you. The Office of Student Affairs’ Safer Substance Use webpage has a lot of information on Carleton specific and public resources for persons who use substances, persons questioning their substance use, and persons with substance use disorder.

If you need further assistance or more information about harm reduction, contact The Office of Student Affairs’ harm reduction and conduct manager Dillon Brady.
