Free REVIVE! Opioid Overdose and Naloxone Education May 10th, 2022.
Northwestern Prevention Collaborative, in conjunction with Northwestern Community Services Board and Northern Shenandoah Valley Substance Abuse Coalition, will offer a free virtual REVIVE! Training on Tuesday, May 10th, from 5 pm to 6 pm. The one-hour online class provides an overview of recognizing an opioid overdose, responding to an opioid emergency, and administering life-saving naloxone.
Opioids are highly potent, making it relatively easy for accidental overdoses. This training is ideal for those who have loved ones who use or have used opioids in the past and those who have personally used or are using opioids.
No prescription is required for this class; it is open to all those interested in being able to save a life.
Those who work in public places or businesses where overdoses may occur can be part of the defense against overdoses, and they are encouraged to attend this free training.
All attendees will receive two free doses of NARCAN by mail.
