Overdose Prevention and Response
Clark County Public Health (CCPH) Harm Reduction Syringe Services Program works to empower individuals with the training and tools needed to prevent overdose deaths. CCPH Overdose Prevention and Response Trainers teach people from all backgrounds how to prevent, recognize, and respond to an opioid overdose.
Everyone who goes through the CCPH Overdose Prevention and Response training may receive a kit containing naloxone, a lifesaving drug that reverses the effects of opioids for overdose victims. CCPH provides training sessions and naloxone kits free of charge; there is no cost for anyone to attend training and learn how to save a life.
Overdose Prevention and Response training and naloxone kits are available to individuals at the CCPH Harm Reduction Center during Syringe Services hours:
Mondays and Wednesdays 3-6pm
Closed on Monday holidays
We offer two training courses: a 45 minute basic training and a 2 hour comprehensive training. To schedule an Overdose Prevention and Response Training, please complete this form. We ask that a request for training be submitted at least two weeks before the requested date.

Addiction and Harm Reduction Resources
The Center for Opioid Safety Education (COSE) at the University of Washington Alcohol & Drug Abuse Institute offers education and technical assistance for individuals, professionals, and communities in Washington State who want to learn how to prevent and intervene in opioid addiction and overdose.
Harm Reduction Coalition was founded in 1993 and incorporated in 1994 by a working group of needle exchange providers, advocates and drug users. Today, we are strengthened by an extensive and diverse network of allies who challenge the persistent stigma faced by people who use drugs and advocate for policy and public health reform.
The Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute is a multidisciplinary research center at the University of Washington. Its mission is to advance research, policy, and practice in order to improve the lives of individuals, families, and communities affected by alcohol and drug use and abuse.
