Goals of our Training Sessions
Okanagan Naloxone is a volunteer project in partnership with H.O.P.E Outreach. We want to make sure you are prepared to respond to an opioid overdose and save a life.
FREE & private
We believe naloxone training should be accessible for everyone, that's why we will never charge for our sessions. Small group sessions ensure that everyone has time for questions and lots of practice!
We think that learning happens through experience. When you train with us, you'll use real syringes and water vials from real kits, so you're prepared in real life.
Along with learning how to administer naloxone, you'll learn how to recognize an opioid overdose, when to call 911, and all about post-overdose care.
In Partnership with H.O.P.E. Outreach
Okanagan Naloxone provides free naloxone training and education to residents of the Okanagan.
We provide hands-on training using supplies from real naloxone kits. You will be able to recognize signs of an opioid overdose, and will also know how to respond. Our private sessions are small, therefore allowing you more time for questions and to practice.

Thank you so much for the training and free Naloxone kits! I feel like I am so much better prepared in the event of an overdose.
If anyone is thinking of getting the training I highly recommend Ariel Robyn . She will set up an appointment in Kelowna at an informal but private room to give you the training. Get a few friends together and realize that you can be trained to possibly save a life….The training and kit are free. Ariel is studying medicine and volunteers her time to teach the use of these kits. A big thank you to Ariel who volunteers her own time to train people in the use. I wish her the best in her medical studies. Meeting her brings a breath of fresh air and appreciation.
