Learn how to administer the opioid reversal drug Naloxone on Wednesday, Jan. 18 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Hotel Indigo in Riverhead at a training event hosted by Assembly Member Jodi Giglio in partnership with the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office and Errol Toulon.

“Long Islanders, and all New Yorkers for that matter, are unfortunately very familiar with the opioid issue that plagues our state. We should be better preparing ourselves for how to fight it in real time,” said Giglio. “If more people become better equipped with the skills to save others from an overdose, we may just have a few more loved ones around to help us fight this ongoing problem.”

The event will train the community members on how to recognize signs of an opioid overdose and how to administer Naloxone.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information about the event, contact Giglio’s office at (631)727-0204 or email dohertyj@nyassembly.gov.
