New Videos Coming Soon for First Responders

September 23, 2022

First responders play a unique role in addressing the opioid crisis. They are the first on the scene when responding to overdoses, and often are called upon to assist people who are suffering from substance use disorder. In order to educate first responders about various aspects of treatment and intervention and to reduce the stigma of substance use disorder among first responders, the Council on Chemical Abuse is developing a series of videos. These videos, which are expected to be released in the late fall, focus on three topics:

  1. Narcan
  2. Medication Assisted Treatment
  3. The Warm Hand Off Program
