2020 Opioids, Narcan, & Your Library - Manchester Community Library

Event Type: Continuing Education Workshop
Date: 2/14/2020
Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Time: 12:00 PM
 Join Lara Keenan from VTLIB, Ron Stankevich from Dominion Diagnostics, and Grace Keller from the Howard Center for a discussion of the impact of opioids in VT, the signs of opioid overdose, community resources for helping patrons and families, the safe administration of Narcan, and policy issues and considerations for library directors and trustees. Discussion will help attendees understand Substance Abuse Disorder as a medical condition, not a choice or a moral failing. Attendees will have a chance to share stories, ask questions, receive training on the use of Narcan, and get resources to help them and their trustees decide if they want to obtain, store, and administer Narcan (if needed) at their libraries.
