Naloxone training offered in Seymour after string of overdoses

Posted: Updated:

SEYMOUR, Ind. (WDRB) -- Seymour leaders say they couldn't afford to put a planned Naloxone training off another day, after last week's mass overdose crisis.

"Overdose Lifeline" held a free distribution event Monday evening.

County Healthcare workers and rehab centers were on hand to teach attendees about effects of opiates.

Organizers then used oranges to show them how to administer Naloxone in case of an overdose.

Organizers gave away about 50 free Naloxone kits in less than an hour.
