Recognizing and Responding to an Opiate/Heroin Overdose

Full Description

The Town of Kennebunk, The Kennebunk Police Department and the Kennebunk school district in partnership with the City of Portland Public Health Division’s Overdose Prevention Project, is pleased to announce two opportunities for our community to be trained in Recognizing and Responding to an Opiate/Heroin Overdose. 

This training is in response to the opiate epidemic sweeping across our country, where Maine and our communities are not immune.  Maine saw 376 drug-induced deaths statewide in 2016, 317 of which were opioid related. 

Our communities must work together to make a difference and help fight this epidemic.  We can all potentially save a life and give hope to recovery. The goal of this training is not only for life-saving purposes, it will hopefully help reduce the stigma attached to those with substance use disorder.     

This class is limited to 60 participants. This training is open to the community and no special equipment or prior training is necessary.

Anyone with questions or requests for additional information may contact 
Chief Bob MacKenzie at the Kennebunk Police Department.
