June 12th 2017 Hilton, New York
28 people took part in the Narcan Training at the Hilton High School. Strong Recovery’s Patrick Seche and Michele Hermann trained local residents on how to save a life using the opioid reversal kit. Over 60,000 overdose deaths have been reported in 2017 with no end in sight of declining. The nasal antidote reverses the effects of opiates on receptors and has been known to save people from overdosing. What other way can you invest 1 hour and walk away with such a rewarding skill? Thank you to those who received their certificates!
In January 1964 the first Surgeon’s Report was issued on Smoking and Health.
52 Years later in November 2016, the Surgeon General issued this report on Alcohol, Drugs and Addiction.
Let’s hope it doesn’t take us another 52 year to make as much progress with addiction as we have with understanding and making healthier decisions regarding smoking. You can help. Get on board now.
