County Executive Lamont G. McClure announced that the Northampton County Drug and Alcohol Division will offer H.O.P.E. Training (Heroin & Opioid Prevention Education + Naloxone Training) as part of the Fentanyl Awareness campaign, Fake is Real.

“Education is vital as we aim to fight against substance abuse and addiction,” says Lamont G. McClure. “Illegal drugs pose a clear danger to our children and our society. The County’s goal is to educate families, specifically young adults, about the dangers of buying counterfeit prescription pills that may contain fentanyl.”

After attending this program, participants will know about the different types of opioids, identify signs and symptoms of opioid abuse and overdose, know how to safely store and dispose of prescription medications, identify community resources for people facing addiction, and learn how to administer NARCAN.

Free NARCAN kits, courtesy of the City of Bethlehem Health Bureau, will be available.
