Access Education


Since 2000, the drug overdose death rate has increased 79% with a 200% increase in deaths involving opioids. Drug overdoses now exceed vehicle crashes as the leading cause of accidental death with an average of 120 deaths occurring per day. While most overdoses occur in the presence of others, some people fear arrest and prosecution so they do not call 9-1-1 or seek medical services. However, Georgia’s 9-1-1 Medical Amnesty and Expanded Naloxone Access Law is exemplary as it protects people who overdose and callers seeking medical assistance at drug or alcohol overdose scenes. This training overviews the Georgia Law; explains how to recognize an overdose situation; and demonstrates how to administer naloxone, an opioid overdose reversal drug.

Learning Objectives
  • Summarize and access amnesty laws such as Georgia’s 2014 9-1-1 Medical Amnesty Law.
  • Learn how to obtain naloxone administration kits.
  • Learn how to administer naloxone.

Education is FREE to all professionals
