Regional Overdose Prevention Specialist, Region 6 South

I am a Humboldt TN native. I have been with the Jackson Madison Prevention Coalition since April 2019 as the Regional Overdose Prevention Specialist (ROPS) of Region 6 South, covering all of Southwest  Tennessee.My goal as a ROPS is to educate the public, medical community, law enforcement, first responders, those with Substance Use Disorders and their family on how to use the opioid overdose reversal drug Naloxone (Narcan).I train and equip individuals with the life saving drug Naloxone (Narcan). Naloxone is a prescription medication used for the treatment of  an opioid emergency such as an overdose or a possible opioid overdose along with always calling 911.
