What?

The first part of the workshop will demonstrate how to accurately measure liquids and powders to help prevent overdose. Using water and benign salts as demonstration tools, safety volunteers will discuss risks associated with super-potent substances and show how low-cost milligram scales and widely available volumetric tools can be used to improve the accuracy of measurement. We will also demonstrate how to use commercially available reagent testing kits to test for the presence of potentially deadly adulterants and reduce risks from misidentified drugs, and will discuss limitations of field reagent kits.
In the second part of the workshop, Dr. Gantt Galloway, Pharm.D., Research and Executive Director of the New Leaf Treatment Center, will provide training in the use of Naloxone or Narcan which blocks the effects of opioids, especially in cases of overdose. Participants will receive Naloxone kits to take home.
