REVIVE! Training and Free Narcan Available at Local Health Depts

The Virginia Department of Health’s (VDH) LENOWISCO health district will offer REVIVE! training -- Virginia’s opioid overdose and naloxone education program -- and will provide Narcan® (naloxone) at no cost to those completing the short training session.

REVIVE! classes will be held in February at local health departments in Lee, Scott and Wise counties and will teach professionals, stakeholders and any concerned community member how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose emergency by administering Narcan® (a brand name for naloxone). This medication reverses the effects of opiates on the brain, giving time for emergency services to respond and provide medical care. REVIVE! training also covers risk factors for opioid overdoses.

For more information, including locations and times of trainings being offered, please see the FULL NOTICE.
