Learn how to use Narcan, the anti-opioid overdose drug, for free

Posted

Free training to teach people how to administer Narcan, the anti-opioid overdose drug, will be offered in Middletown from 6 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at the Life Living Cafe, 56 E. Emaus St.

People who pre-register will receive a free Narcan kit, until supplies run out. Email your name and phone number to kstatt@ncdaf.org.

Wendy Loranzo, a Middletown resident whose daughter Elizabeth died from an accidental overdose after taking heroin laced with fentanyl in March 2017, came before borough council on Feb. 19 to urge people take advantage of the free training.

“It saves lives,” Loranzo said of Narcan, a naloxone brand name. “Take an hour out of your time to learn to save a life. It’s definitely worth it.”

After Elizabeth’s death, Wendy founded the Elizabeth Loranzo iCare Foundation. The foundation is playing host to the Feb. 26 free training in conjunction with The Natalie Cribari Drug Awareness Fund, and Heroin The Fight.
