Overdose Prevention Education
CSUF Naloxone Distribution Project
SB-367 was enacted in January 2023, which required CSUF to provide opioid education and reversal medication. Since then, TitanWELL has been educating our Titan community at student orientations and providing the training plus distributing Narcan kits to those who complete the training.
The FDA has approved for Narcan to be bought over the counter . Further, GoodRx Health has an article about purchasing Narcan .
California Good Samaritan Law
The “911 Good Samaritan” law provides limited protections from arrest, charge, and/or prosecution for people who, in good faith, seeks emergency medical assistance at the scene of an overdose (AB 472, Ammiano, 2012). California law also protects anyone who carry naloxone and administer to someone suspected of experiencing an overdose.
Opioid overdoses remain a serious concern in California, especially for our CSUF community. This training covers the signs of overdoses, the steps to respond to an overdose, and the opioid overdose reversal medicine called Naloxone. At the end of the training, participants can obtain a Naloxone kit through TitanWELL.
