We are now offering all our inducted volunteers the opportunity to complete 10 mins training with Alcohol & Drugs Action peer outreach team.
It was pleasure to welcome in Hanane as our first trainee, who passed with flying colours. The advantage of having completed her induction meant she had already done the initial Scottish Drugs Forum, quick, easy, yet very informative free e-learning certificates.
What is naloxone? Naloxone is a drug that can reverse the effects of opioids, such as heroin, methadone, opium, codeine, morphine and buprenorphine. Naloxone can even save someone’s life if it's used quickly after they’ve overdosed on opioids.
Medical professionals have been using naloxone in emergencies for many years. We want to make sure that anyone who needs it has it to hand and knows how to use it. Get a free naloxone kit and training
If you'd like a naloxone kit, just contact us. A trained member of staff will give you a kit, and teach you how to prevent and manage opioid overdoses. Naloxone training can take as little as 10 minutes with kits handed out there and then. This follows our induction which included drug awareness and Naloxone (both from SDF) - our training is offered by Street Friends trainers, operating as one of their other roles, recognised ADA volunteers, as ADA lived experience peer Naloxone outreach training team.

Anyone can use naloxone in an emergency. You don’t need to be a doctor or medical professional. We give kits to anyone who could use it to save a life, for example if you use opiate drugs or if someone you know does. If you use your kit, or if it lost, damaged or out of date, we’ll be happy to give you a new one.
