WINSTED, CT – September 18, 2020 – Northwestern Connecticut Community College (NCCC) in collaboration with the McCall Center for Behavioral Health and funding from the Connecticut Healthy Campus Initiative – Campus Opioid Education and Awareness Program, will be offering FREE life-saving Naloxone (Narcan) training for people 18 years of age or older who live in Litchfield County and/or is a student at NCCC.

When administered correctly, the nasal spray Narcan restores breathing that has been dangerously slowed by an overdose of heroin or prescription painkillers. Narcan can work within a minute or two, giving emergency responders time to get the person to a hospital.

Residents who participate in the free trainings learn how to administer Narcan. Residents who do not have health insurance, will receive a free Narcan kit. Residents who have health insurance will be instructed on how to obtain a kit at a participating pharmacy through their health insurance.

The Support And Resource Team and the Campus Assessment, Response & Evaluation (SART/CARE) team is sponsoring this virtual Narcan Training.
