NCAPDA (National Coalition Against Prescription Drug Abuse) is now providing virtual training bi-monthly that will equip participants with critical life-saving drug prevention and overdose rescue skills.
Training will include both prescription drug and fentanyl safety education along with how to recognize and respond to an opioid-related overdose using Narcan, the spray version of naloxone.
Scheduled training dates will be published on our homepage and events page at least 30 days in advance of the training. Anyone in the U.S. can register to attend and we can accommodate up to 100 registrants for each training.
FREE NARCAN® overdose rescue kits can be provided upon request to California residents only. Kits will need to either be picked up or mailed to you, depending on where you reside.
Certificates of completion can be provided electronically upon request.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing the Zoom link necessary for joining the training you have selected.
Please contact us with registration problems, questions, or for more information.

This past summer, students from UC Berkeley (some of whom are included above) provided support to NCAPDA in terms of distributing NARCAN® rescue kits among their peers, participating in our outreach events, publishing social media content, and raising awareness about NARCAN® and the dangers of certain prescription drugs and illicit fentanyl. These four students are continuing their work with us during the Fall semester along with seven other new members of our UC Berkeley cohort. Go here to learn more about these amazing students who are working to make a difference with our local overdose epidemic.
