Free Naloxone Kits and Training for Public

The Greater Hartford Harm Reduction Coalition is offering to the public training in how to reverse an opioid (OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin, Heroin, Fentanyl) overdose. Participants will receive free Naloxone (Narcan) kits, which have the potential to prevent overdose deaths.

The GHHRC says Naloxone “does NOT encourage people to increase use of opiates” and that “goals, such as decreasing drug use, can only be accomplished if the user is alive.”

For the foreseeable future, GHHRC is hosting free training sessions every Thursday beginning at 7 p.m. at its office, 1229 Albany Avenue in Hartford. GHHRC requests that those intending to attend get in touch with the date they want to attend on.

Place this Place: Every Monday we publish a photo and let readers guess where in Hartford it was taken. Each week we feature a different neighborhood (look for the HTFD NBHD tag) and this Monday mystery place kicks it off. Unless noted otherwise, the photo was taken outdoors in either a public place, a place that can be easily seen from a public space, or a place that might not technically be public, but nobody seems to know that.

So, where is this? Give an exact location or nearest intersection in the comment space below. (more…)
