The AmeriCorps Community Training for Overdose Rescue (ACT) program aims to stop overdose deaths and other harm related to opioids. ACT is based at Wayne State University's Center for Urban Studies. Members serve as Overdose Rescue Trainers and teach people in the tri-county area how to provide aid during an overdose emergency. ACT members deliver overdose rescue education, raise awareness about opioid use disorder and harm reduction strategies, and distribute overdose rescue kits containing Narcan (an overdose-reversing nasal spray).
