by Rouhani, Mani, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 73; 1522599
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate potential sources of funding and write a grant to develop a framework to distribute information and Naloxone to users at risk of overdose in the Long Beach area. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the most appropriate methods and interventions to implement the program. The program will be implemented at Mental Health of America Village, an agency providing mental health services in Long Beach, California. The two funding sources that have been identified are the Comer Foundation for Naloxone kit funds and the California Wellness Foundation for personnel and operation funds. A "train the trainer" model will be implemented to educate the population on accidental overdose and appropriate use of Naloxone, and provide access to Naloxone kits. Actual submission of and/or funding of the grant proposal was not required for successful completion of this project.
