Program Description

The Problem:

The misuse of prescription medication and opioid-based drugs has increased significantly over the years to become a public health concern and the presence of fentanyl in NYC’s drug supply has dramatically increased, with 68% of overdose deaths in 2019.

Our Solution:

EAC’s Opioid Overdose Prevention program believes in the solution-focused approach of providing free, peer-led overdose education that will expand the understanding of what naloxone is and the vital role it plays in reversing an opioid overdose.

How We Do it:

The Opioid Overdose Prevention Program at EAC Network, in partnership with the NYC Department of Health, help bring life-saving opioid overdose prevention tools and resources to EAC employees, partnering criminal justice and health & human service agencies, and the participants they serve, expanding harm reduction and overdose prevention education within NYC. This FREE naloxone training can teach participants to become a Certified Opioid Overdose Responder and provide Overdose Rescue Kits with naloxone–a medication that can help SAVE A LIFE by reversing the effects of an opioid overdose.
