NEWTON, NJ - On Thursday, September 20, 2018, The Center for Prevention and Counseling’s Recovery Community Center in Newton will be hosting a free Narcan training, open to all community members. Opioid overdose is preventable and knowing the facts about drugs and the signs and symptoms of overdoses can equip you with the ability to save a life. This FREE training will also provide education and increase awareness of the issues surrounding substance use disorders while highlighting resources for recovery. Free Narcan kits will be distributed at this training and pre-registration is required.  Please RSVP to Erica Shortway by emailing eshortway@mcpik.org .
