The Woodlands Naloxone Training and Prevention Class


We had a successful training and educational event on how to administer Naloxone, to reverse a heroin/opioid overdose in The Woodlands, Texas. Mark Kinzly with AHRC ~ Austin Harm Reduction Coalition and TONI ~ Texas Overdose Naloxone Initiative presented the training class. Mark speaks with knowledge, honesty and compassion about the crisis that we are in. He teaches us how to save lives with Naloxone and also gives information to help those dealing with Substance Use Disorder.

We also had a special guest Hon Boui with Specialty Pharmaceutical Solutions.
