Drug help education workshop set

A community education program, "Naloxone Saves Lives," will be held Dec. 10 from noon to 1 p.m. in New Milford.

The program about Naloxone, which reverses the effects of an opioid overdose, will take place at The Maxx on Railroad Street.

Walgreen Pharmacist Anne Linksey will lead the program and answer questions.

The event is targeted to service providers in the community that may work with clients in various capacities, who are using prescription drugs, abusing prescription drugs, or using illegal opiates, such as heroin, as well as anyone using opioids, with or without a prescription, and others affected by opiod issues.
