PHOENIXVILLE PA – Free community training in the safe administration of naloxone, a medication used to reverse an opioid overdose, is scheduled for May 17 (2023; Wednesday) at 6:30 p.m. in the Phoenixville Recreation Center, 501 Franklin Ave.
The no-cost event, which is open to the public, is being jointly sponsored by state 44th District Sen. Katie Muth and the Chester County Department of Drug and Alcohol Services. Advance registration is required, however, and is available online.
Substance use disorders are the cause of death for an average of 10 Pennsylvanians every day, according to the state Department of Health. “The disease affects each and every Pennsylvanian, and threatens entire communities in our Commonwealth,” Muth’s office said in a media release.
For more information about the training, call Muth’s office at 610-792-2137. The 44th District includes portions of Chester, Montgomery and Berks counties.
