The mission of The Counseling Center at Clark is to help people with addiction, both through recovery support and with education. The Counseling Center strives to be a strong participant in the continuum of care within New Jersey while working to remove the stigma associated with addiction and addiction disorders.
Jennyfer Pierre, LPC, LCADC, Clinical Director for The Counseling Center at Clark, has helped bring this event to The Counseling Center. Jennyfer will be on-hand during the event to answer questions about addiction disorders, treatment options, and how families and community members can better understand the role of Naloxone in addiction and addiction treatment.
This free seminar will provide detailed information about Naloxone, including how and when it can properly be used to reverse an overdose. The seminar will also address the rights and responsibilities of those seeking to utilize Naloxone kits in emergencies. Free Naloxone kits will be available to participants, in accordance with regulations, and guidelines from the sponsors supplying the free kits.
The drug Naloxone (more commonly known as a product called Narcan) can reverse the effects of opiates and opioids (including heroin and many prescription painkillers) almost immediately when administered intravenously (with a needle) or intranasal (with a nasal spray). Emergency responders have carried Naloxone for many years, administering it under physician supervision when called to a scene of an overdose. Poison Control or emergency medical staff would rely on the availability of Naloxone as an emergency measure to counter an overdose, where death from an overdose was likely.
Come to Learn More at the Narcan training in Clark, NJ on October 23rd. Training is being provided by JSAS Healthcare.
