Image of a torn piece of paper with the word Opioid Addiction typed upon it. What appears to be white rounded pills are in the background of the image.

Join us in the community room at Delta Library for an informative program created for both teens and adults.

Lyndall Young of the Western Colorado Area Health Education Center will be presenting information on:

  • Opioids in our Community
  • Opioids and how they work in the body
  • Overdose signs and symptoms
  • Different kinds of Naloxone and how to administer it correctly
  • Stigma reduction
  • Drug disposal and handling

Naloxone is a medication used to reverse or reduce the effects of opioids. For example, it is used to restore breathing after an opioid overdose. Naloxone’s effects begin within two minutes when given intravenously, five minutes when injected into a muscle, and ten minutes as a nasal spray. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioids for 30 to 90 minutes.
