Vol State and Opioid Awareness


The Vol State AmeriCorps VISTA workers, Crystal Sloss, Anedra Moore, and Jason Ditzler, recently attended a Narcan Training Workshop. They learned to:

● Understand the administration of naloxone products, including “Good Samaritan” protection law
● Recognize the signs of an opioid overdose and identify its causes and risks
● Describe what NOT to do during an opioid overdose
● Follow the correct steps when encountering an opioid overdose

The VISTA’S will be teaming up with Tiffany Zwart, from the Office of Student Engagement and Support, in creating an ongoing Vol State campaign to address student opioid awareness and prevention. 

In order to maintain a drug-free campus, Volunteer State Community College networks with the Sumner County Anti-Drug Coalition (SCADC) in conjunction with the Coalition for Healthy and Safe Campus Communities (CHASCo), and the Tennessee Highway Safety Office Booze It or Lose It Program.
