3/13/2018 - Change the Script Seminars: How to identify an opioid overdose & administer Narcan
Dear Canton Residents,
The Mental Health Task Force continues its work to raise awareness of the opioid crisis in our area. One goal this year is to increase collaborative efforts in our region to address this issue. Recently, the Canton Youth Services Bureau was a recipient of a mini-grant from CASAC (Capitol Area Substance Abuse Council). A portion of the funds are being used to partner with Avon, also a grant recipient, to present two “Change the Script” seminars on identifying an opioid overdose and administering Narcan. These seminars are free to the public, but registration is requested. The first will be held on Tuesday, March 13th at 6:30 pm at Rushford, 35 Tower Lane, Avon. The second will be held on Thursday, March 22nd at 6:00 pm at the Canton Community Center. Flyers for each event are attached here. I hope you will consider attending one of these important presentations.
