Naloxone Overdose Response workshop

Naloxone Overdose Response workshop

The Early Morning Centre hosts the Naloxone Overdose Response workshop, delivered by CAHMA. The workshop covers opioid overdose risk factors as well as how to spot an overdose. Attendees learn how to respond to an opioid overdose, including how to administer CPR and Naloxone.

This life-saving workshop is run by CAHMA (Canberra Alliance for Harm Minimisation and Advocacy). CAHMA is a peer-based drug user support group, run by people and for people who use, or have used, illicit drugs.

What is Naloxone?

Naloxone is a drug that can temporarily reverse opioid overdose. It works by blocking opioid drugs from attaching to opioid receptors in the brain.

(Some example of opioids include heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone, codeine and morphine.)

Attendees will leave with an OD reversal kit.
