Project OPEN Training and News Conference 2017

Attorney General Hector Balderas, District Attorney Mark D’Antonio, Sheriff Enrique “Kiki” Vigil and Mayor Ken Miyagishima announced that the Attorney General’s Project OPEN: Opioid Prevention & Education Network will host an Opioid Abuse Training in Las Cruces on Friday, October 27.

The training is free and will expose government officials, counselors, attorneys, policy advisors, investigators, healthcare professionals, consumer advocates, law enforcement and others to the impact and results of opioid abuse on New Mexico communities. It is intended to enhance the participants’ knowledge and understanding of opioid addiction and the countless issues involved, and to afford participants the opportunity to explore program materials and solutions to addressing the opioid epidemic.

In addition, the Unified Prevention Coalition for Doña Ana County will provide a free Naloxone training. Participants will be given the opportunity to receive the training and certification necessary to administer this life-saving drug.

The City of Las Cruces welcomes the above-mentioned partners to a joint effort news conference to kick off the Project OPEN: Opioid Prevention & Education Network free training at 1:15 p.m., Friday, October 27, at Las Cruces City Hall Council Chambers (700 N. Main Street).
