Free Class in Cannon County on Overdoses and How to Utilize NARCAN

Jul 27, 2020 at 12:00 pm by WGNS


In nearby Woodbury, the Cannon County Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition will hold its August online Building Community Resources Series presentation on Tuesday, August 4th at 6 pm.

Due to the increased overdoses we are experiencing in Cannon County related to Covid-19, this will be a free Narcan Training class specifically for Cannon County.

Narcan is an approved opioid overdose reversal drug that when used, has no reported negative side effects. 

Michael Bare, Regional Overdose Prevention Specialist of the TN Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, will be on hand to teach the free class. Participants will receive a certificate for completing the 45-minute lesson and a free Opioid Overdose Reversal Kit.
