Nassau County hosts overdose prevention class in Massapequa
Nassau County hosted a drug overdose prevention class Thursday in Massapequa.
Participants were shown how to use a NARCAN kit to prevent a heroin overdose. They were also able to take the kits home with them.
The session was run by community members and recovering addicts. Christopher Genovese is a recovering addict and says he now does interventions to help others recover.
Similar meetings are being held throughout the county.
