Overdose Lifeline offers live online and on-site training at your facility for groups of five or more. This makes for a cost-effective way to train a group of individuals on your schedule. In order to access attendees’ knowledge before and after the training, ODL performs pre- and post-class evaluations. Additionally, some courses require pre-course work to prime attendees for the training and prepare them to retain as much information as possible.

in partnership with Purdue University

This training gave a great overview of opioids and their effects on the body. It also allows the participant the ability to learn about recovery practices and not just the addiction side, which I thought was excellent! The training also taught about naloxone, reasons for its use, history and how to administer.
