A 1.5-hour training with Ryan Fowler, CRSW

October 29, 2021

12:00pm-1:30pm


**this event will be virtual only**

PRESENTATION: In response to the recent uptick in overdoses in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, H2RC is working to enhance naloxone distribution in the region and is offering a new Overdose Prevention training for people who want to dispense naloxone, better support people who use drugs, or further their understanding of the overdose crisis. The goal of these trainings is to enhance the existing system of naloxone distribution and work with impacted communities to enhance access to life-saving harm reduction services for those who are most at risk of overdose.

This updated Naloxone and Harm Reduction Training will have an emphasize on harm reduction as a philosophy and a framework of working with people, current drug trends, and pragmatic approaches to overdose prevention. As a result of this training participants will: 

  • Describe current drug trends, evidence-based interventions for drug use, overdose prevention strategies, and naloxone administration;
  • How, with harm reduction, all drug-related death is preventable; and
  • The intersectionality of {Prevention, Intervention, Treatment, and Recovery} with Harm Reduction.


ABOUT THE PRESENTER: A native of New Hampshire, Ryan Fowler is a person in sustained recovery and a Certified Recovery Support Worker. He is a former injection drug user and credits being alive and his clean bill of health to harm reduction and evidence-based treatment. After working in addiction treatment and recovery for several years, Ryan began focusing on harm reduction, public health strategies, and overdose prevention efforts. Using both his negative lived experience and positive professional experience, he has grown in effectiveness and is passionate about helping other people who use drugs to stay alive and find recovery.

In January 2020, Ryan began his current position as the Harm Reduction Coordinator for the HIV/HCV Resource Center (H2RC) in Lebanon, NH. He operates the Claremont Exchange, a legal syringe service program in Claremont, New Hampshire. He will be expanding this program within Grafton and Sullivan counties in NH. Ryan’s goal for this project is to ensure that everyone in these counties has access to life-saving Harm Reduction Services.

Part of Ryan’s role with H2RC includes providing trainings to professionals and the community at large. These trainings cover several topics related to Harm Reduction.
