The Chicago Recovery Alliance is the first organized overdose prevention and naloxone distribution program in the country. We also provide training and technical assistance to organizations and individuals who want to implement an overdose prevention program. We can provide 90-minute overdose responder trainings and 3-hour train-the-trainer workshops as well as answer questions and think through your implementation process. In some cases, we have some funding support to provide these services at low or no cost!
We prioritize training requests that center people who use drugs as the focus for naloxone. We are eager to provide training and partnership with organizations that operate on the South and West sides of Chicago, provide services to people who use drugs in ways other than injection, African-American people, LGBT people, and people experiencing homelessness. We can provide training in English and Spanish.
We currently distribute about 80,000 doses of naloxone annually- contact us to learn how your organization can help expand the reach!
