HELP THOSE IN NEED GIVE OVERDOSE RESCUE HOPE FOR A LIFE SAVED



INDIVIDUALS-GET TRAINED!
In as little as 20 minutes, you can learn techniques to save the life of a loved-one, friend, co-worker, neighbor ... anyone ... who is experiencing an overdose caused by prescription narcotics or heroin. You can also find out where you can obtain the lifesaving, easy-to-use antidote, naloxone, as well as access relevant information and links on our website. After the training, check out what else we have to offer on our site.

INSTITUTIONAL PROGRAM
Central to our mission to save lives is our institutional program. Targeted online training is available to professional first responders (police officers, firefighters, EMTs) through use of our first responder computer-based training module.

We also support health-care providers seeking to use the bystander module to train patients.

States may also contact us to develop a state-specific web-page with state-specific information (such as where and how to obtain naloxone) and links.

HOW CAN YOU HELP
Our computer-based training modules can help you give someone a second chance, and spare those who love them the pain of a preventable loss of life or brain injury.
The online training is provided free of charge. If you wish to obtain CE or CASAC credits (pending accreditation) after completing the module, a nominal fee may apply.

Prototypes of the modules were developed at Social Sciences Innovations Corporation, Inc. (SSIC). Thanks are due to the Hillman Foundation which supported the development of the Nurse Practitioner manual, The Center for Drug Use and HIV Research (CDUHR) for awarding funding to evaluate our efforts and the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network for providing support to update the training modules and help disseminate them nationwide.
