NAMI Orange wishes to thank Jeffrey Spitz, LCSW Executive Director of Restorative Management Corp. for presenting our Narcan training to instruct how to recognize the symptoms and signs of an overdose and how to administer a drug used to reverse the effects of opiate overdose to give victims a chance at survival.
Location: 7 Railroad Avenue, Middletown, NY 10940
Those whose Narcan kits have expired medications or who have had the situation to use the Narcan to prevent an overdose, may get replacement vials of the medication.
PLEASE NOTE: Some of the atomizers given out with the NARCAN kits at the workshop given through NAMI Orange November, 2016 have been recalled (Click here for the Recall Listing). They do not atomize the antidote properly and the antidote comes out in a stream. If that is all you have, you are advised to, by all means, use it, but know that it may not be as effective as if it could produce a mist instead of a stream. Anyone who has an atomizer that is on the recall list can immediately obtain a replacement by contacting Jeffrey Spitz (see above).
If anyone has used Narcan to prevent an overdose, he/she is requested to complete and submit the "New York State Department of Health Opioid Overdose Reporting Form".
