Opioid Overdose Reversal Class
Overdose is the leading cause of accidental death in the U.S., and the majority of those deaths are from opioids like prescription painkillers and heroin. Naloxone is a safe, effective medication that, when given in time, can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. It has saved thousands of lives. If you or a loved one use opioids, legal or illicit, you need this training!
All attendees will receive instruction on how to recognize the signs of overdose, what to do and not do in an overdose situation, how to administer naloxone, and follow up procedures. Each attendee will also receive a free Revive kit provided by the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, which includes all the supplies needed to administer naloxone. We can assist financially in aquiring the medication after the class.
