On Aug. 6, the Williston Park Neighborhood Watch Program in conjunction with Nassau County will be hosting a Narcan training session.
This extremely important event will take place at Williston Park Village Hall, 494 Willis Ave., in Williston Park beginning at 7 p.m. and lasting approximately two hours.
Those in attendance will be given the opportunity to learn: The signs of opiate overdose, how to reverse an opiate overdose, and new treatment approaches in dealing with opiate addiction.
The opioid problem is a national crisis impacting all communities (including Long Island) and individuals from all walks of life.
