UTICA- Popstar Demi Lovato's recent overdose brought attention to the importance on education of administering Narcan.

Narcan is an antidote used to reverse an overdose. Officials with the Center for Family Life and Recovery said overdoses are on the rise across the country, so getting educated on how to use Narcan could be extremely beneficial. "It saves lives and if someone does happen to overdose and someone is there and can administer Narcan you can save lives," said Kathy Peters, the Director for development and marketing at CFLR.

Peters also said, those in the middle of recovery can relapse if they're simply having a bad day.

The next class at CFLR to learn how to administer Narcan will be Thursday, August 9th at 5:30 p.m. Officials at CFLR are asking residents to call them to reserve a spot.
