Activity Description

In 2015 Tennessee had the 10th highest overdose mortality rate in the nation. Naloxone can reverse a potentially fatal overdose by allowing the person to breathe normally after the opioid medication has slowed their breathing to a dangerous rate.

Having access to Naloxone, and having the proper training to use it, could save a life.

How can I do that?

  • Visit the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services website to learn more about Naloxone and opioid education.
  • View the Regional Overdose Prevention Specialist (ROPS) Map to find contact information for your region.
  • Contact the specialist in your region to schedule an opioid education and naloxone training.
