- Do you know the number of deaths in Kentucky each year from heroin and opiate overdoses?
- Did you know that both the equipment and training to save the life on an overdose victim are available for FREE?
The Kentucky Harm Reduction Coalition is a statewide organization whose mission is to reduce substance addiction overdoses and deaths, the stigma associated with addiction, and to offer harm reduction solutions which includes improving public health in Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
To do this they are offering free Naloxone kits along with training in their use to provide immediate life-saving treatment for overdose situations to as many people as possible.
The Coalition is offering a special evening event in the Multi-Purpose Building at Holy Trinity Parish, 501 Cherrywood Road, Louisville, KY 40207 on Monday June 26th at 6:30 PM. At this time Naloxone kits and training in their use will be provided to all attendees.
The event is free but in order to make sure there are enough materials available for everyone, pre-registration is required which can be done via the Archdiocese of Louisville’s Family Ministries Office at https://www.archlou.org/naloxone-training-registration/.
Everyone is invited to become a lifesaver to someone in need!
