REVIVE! - Saving Lives, Saving Futures!


Opioid Overdose and Naloxone Education for Virginia

 

  • Currently using opioids such as heroin or prescription pain medications?
  • Abstinent from opioid use, but have used in the past?
  • A friend or family member of someone who currently uses opioids?
  • Working in a setting where opioid overdoses occur?

If so, then consider attending a REVIVE! Lay Rescuer Training. REVIVE! is Virginia’s Opioid Overdose and Naloxone Education (ONE) program, helping people learn how to recognize and respond to opioid overdose emergencies by administering naloxone, a medication that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. Medical experience is helpful but not necessary! 

Come to a REVIVE! Lay Rescuer Training event to learn:

  • How opioid overdoses happen and how naloxone works.
  • How to recognize an overdose
  • Risk factors for overdoses and myths about overdose reversal
  • How to administer naloxone

Training is free of charge, and include a free kit with supplies as well as information about how and where to purchase naloxone.                            

Seating is limited. Registration is required. Training provided by Chesapeake Integrated Behavioral Healthcare.
