Upcoming Webinars

First Responder, Last Chance?

April 13 @ 2pm EST

Drug overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the US, surpassing traffic fatalities. Opioid use is driving this epidemic. Awareness of prescription abuse and misuse has resulted in people turning to heroin. Heroin is being mixed with ultra potent chemicals and more people are accidentally overdosing and dying.

Opioids have a long history of medicinal and recreational use. They take away pain and activate pleasure sensors in the brain. Too much of an opiate can stop a person's breathing. Naloxone is an opiate receptor blocker that can restore a person's ability to breathe. It can be administered intranasal and can save a person's life. Naloxone is a safe medication that an officer can administer with training. In this webinar, learn how the benefits of an opioid reversal program go beyond just a life-saving intervention and truly embody law enforcement's motto "to protect and to serve".

Presenter: Christopher Cicuto, Clinical Staff Pharmacist, Drug Information Center, Diamond Pharmacy, Indiana, PA
