New York State Office of Addiction Services and Supports Offers Free Online Narcan Training

  • Replacing OASAS-sponsored in-person events across the state during the COVID-19 New York State PAUSE and the New York Forward reopening process, live two-hour online trainings allow participants to interact with an instructor while learning to recognize, respond to and reverse a suspected overdose using naloxone. 
  • Participants also learn how to obtain free or very low-cost naloxone without a prescription at a local participating pharmacy using their medical prescription insurance in conjunction with the New York State Naloxone Co-Payment Assistance Program (N-CAP), or by contacting a local registered Opioid Overdose Prevention Program
  • Citizens and first responders can find registration information at https://oasas.ny.gov/keywords/naloxone. Events are offered multiple times per week on a variety of schedules and are open to anyone.  An internet-connected device with sound and video is required.
