Further Information

This course is designed for a group of people. We welcome groups of up to 20 people at one time. The session itself generally lasts between 90mins to 2 hours, and can be tailored to your needs. We would come to a destination of your choice to provide the session, and would need a suitable space with a projector or screen.

You can also access Naloxone training through our partners, the Scottish Drugs Forum. They provide e-learning training, and it is ideal if you just want training for one person.
