“Times Have Changed”: Alabama Schools Training Staff To Treat Opioid Overdoses
Alabama educators are embarking on a new program to treat overdosing students amid the nation’s growing opioid epidemic, according to the BBC. “Times have changed. Kids are getting things out of their parents’ cabinets. They don’t have to go out on the street, and they don’t know what they are taking,” says Shelby County school nursing supervisor Jan Cibulski. The new program will include teachers, coaches and administrators as opposed to only school nurses.
