Celebrating Saratoga’s diversity

New opioid workshop set

The Santa Clara County Library District and the County of Santa Clara Behavioral Health Services Department have scheduled a second Opioid Overdose Prevention Workshop at the Saratoga Library. In addition to the workshop previously announced for Saturday, Sept. 9 at 1 p.m., another is planned for Wednesday, Aug. 30, at 11 a.m.

The workshops will cover drug education, including recognizing an opioid overdose, and will provide training with the over-the-counter medication Naloxone nasal spray commonly known as Narcan.

Earlier this year, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors approved a proposal to supply and maintain Narcan at county libraries in the event of an emergency.

No registration is necessary. Participants who complete the training will be given a free Narcan kit, while supplies last.
