County Executive Lamont G. McClure announced that the Northampton County Drug and Alcohol Division will continue to offer free Narcan training this spring as part of the County’s Fentanyl Awareness campaign, Fake is Real.

“The County’s goal is to educate families, specifically young adults, about the dangers of buying counterfeit prescription pills that may contain fentanyl. Our education and training efforts are helping to fight against substance abuse and addiction,” says Executive Lamont G. McClure.

Anyone who participates in the training will learn 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, and identify community resources for people facing addiction. Participants also learn how to administer Narcan, a life-saving medication that can reverse an opioid overdose. Participants will receive a free Narcan kit.
