Tennessee Save a Life Project

The Tennessee Save a Life Project is an initiative to help prevent opioid-related overdoses. The Regional Overdose Prevention Specialists (ROPS) conduct individual and group training sessions to educate and distribute Naloxone kits to individuals in the community who are affected by opiate use and overdose. If your agency works directly with opioid users or if you or a loved one is affected by the opioid crisis, please contact one of our ROPS to schedule a training.
