The Overdose Education and Naloxone Distribution (OEND) program teaches those at risk of overdose and those who care about them how to prevent, recognize, and respond to an overdose with rescue breathing and Narcan, a drug that can reverse an opioid overdose. The goal of the program is to decrease the number of opioid overdose deaths in L.A. County. The L.A. County Department of Health Services (DHS) has adopted the OEND initiative.
DHS collaborates with Community Health Project Los Angeles (CHPLA), an OEND provider that provides technical support, education, and Narcan. Probation is one of the networks of L.A. organizations that hosts CHPLA. The OEND program at CHPLA offers coordination, assessment, provider trainings, training films, and other training materials for community education, authorization for providers, and other services for Provider Partners.
There will be a Mandatory 2-hour class of Narcan Nasal Spray training offered on STC/OT. If you wish to attend on overtime, email DSO Keopimpha at email@example.com and confirm what date/time you would like to attend. This is mandatory training for all probation staff. If you cannot attend on overtime, you will be scheduled during your shift.
