Naloxone Training

Sanguen Health Centre is pleased to offer overdose prevention + naloxone training in both Waterloo Region and Guelph-Wellington.

Currently, we only train and dispense the nasal version. If you prefer, you can access injectable naloxone through pharmacies in your community – click this link to find a pharmacy near you. If your preferred pharmacy does not carry naloxone, please ask them to start – the more kits, and the more availability, the safer our community!


Individual Training:

Training for individuals takes approximately 45 minute to 1 hour.

To access individual naloxone training through Sanguen Health Centre, please call our office at 519-603-0223 or toll free at 1-877-351-9857. You can also email  Individual training may be available at our office, in the community, or at other agencies. When you contact us, please let us know whether you are in Waterloo Region or Guelph-Wellington.

Training is also available through The Community Health Van in both Regions during regular operating hours.


Group Training:

Group training for overdose prevention + naloxone takes approximately 1 hour. If you would like to include our Drugs 101 + Harm Reduction 101 training (recommended) in addition to the overdose prevention + naloxone training, it will take approximately 2 – 2.5 hours depending on the size of your group.

Note for Agencies and Companies:
