Naloxone Training and Certification 

Naloxone is an opioid antagonist medication approved by the FDA to reverse opioid overdose. It displaces opioid drugs (such as morphine or heroin) from their receptors and prevents further opioid receptor activation, reversing the effects of opioid overdose and can be life-saving if administered in time. The drug is sold under the brand names of Narcan or Evzio.
