Naloxone Overdose Rescue Training

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.  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing the Zoom link necessary for joining the training you have selected.

Following the training you can expect the following will be e-mailed to you: 

  • Certificate of Training Completion
  • PDF of the Training Slides
  • Educational Fliers
  • Listing of locations where you can pick up a FREE naloxone rescue kit (California Residents Only).   Mailing arrangements can be made for those who are unable to pick up their kits in person.

UC Berkeley Summer Intern Class of 2023

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.

What We Do

OUR MISSION

NCAPDA's mission is to save lives through our community education programs, policy change, legislative advocacy and distribution of opioid overdose rescue kits (NARCAN®).

WHO WE ARE

The coalition was founded in 2010 as a national 501(c)3 non-profit, volunteer-based organization to prevent prescription drug/opioid-related Substance Use Disorder (SUD) and overdose deaths following the tragic death of Joseph (Joey) John Rovero III.

WORKING TOGETHER

We network with like-minded organizations, agencies and community members across the country to share best practices, develop and share resources, and establish and implement a cohesive, nationwide education campaign around medication and opioid safety.
