Community partners will participate in a series of free addiction-related community sessions hosted by the Delaware Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health.
The sessions will be a way for people to talk with treatment experts, learn about local services and supports and have access to a training class on how to use the overdose-reversing medication naloxone.
“We’ve heard from people across our state who say they aren’t always sure where and how to access treatment for their loved ones suffering from addiction,” Gov. John Carney said. “These sessions will give people the opportunity to talk face-to-face with providers and advocates from their communities, to ask questions and to figure out which options are best for their particular needs.”
Community sessions are from 2 to 7 p.m. at the following dates and locations:
— Nov. 30: Delaware Technical Community College, Terry Campus, Corporate Training Center, 100 Campus Drive, Dover.
— Dec. 6: West End Neighborhood House, 710 N. Lincoln St., Wilmington.
— Dec. 14: Delaware Technical Community College, Owens Campus, Carter Partnership Center, 21179 College Drive, Georgetown.
A Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health trainer will lead the naloxone training sessions at each event.
