Overdose Prevention Seminar


On Wednesday, Jan. 27, from 7 to 9 p.m., Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano and County Legislators Donald Mackenzie and Delia DeRiggi-Whitton join with North Shore School District officials to host a free Overdose Prevention Seminar at North Shore High School.

Residents will learn how to administer Narcan, the lifesaving antidote that can reverse the fatal effects of an Opiate overdose, and learn the warning signs of drug addiction, treatment options, personal stories of recovery and more.

Social Worker and Certified Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor attendees will be eligible to receive free Continuing Education Units (CEU) for the two hour workshop, which is provided by the Nassau County Department of Human Services.

Anyone can attend, but seating is limited. Residents must pre-register either by emailing elaikin@nassaucountyny.gov or by calling 516-571-6105. For dates and locations of other Overdose Prevention Seminars, visit www.nassaucountyny.gov/overdose.
