It is estimated that six million Canadians experience addiction in their lifetime and an average of 20 die from opioid toxicity every day. CAMH has launched free online education to teach you how to use a naloxone kit to help save lives.

The new Opioid Overdose Response Training is an engaging gamified experience for you to practice responding to an opioid overdose in four steps:

  1. quickly identify an overdose
  2. call for help
  3. use a naloxone kit to administer treatment and
  4. support a person as they are revived.

Naloxone is a medication that can save lives by quickly reversing the effects of an opioid overdose. As you go through this training course, you'll get personalized feedback on how you respond in different situations and learn how to assist someone better while waiting for help to arrive.

Take-home naloxone kits are available for free at most pharmacies in Ontario. Call your local pharmacy for more information.
