Event description

Description

Drug overdose is the leading cause of death in Americans under age 50, 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. Naloxone is available free of charge for trainees who are at high risk of witnessing an overdose. Naloxone can also be purchased at participating pharmacies without a prescription in Virginia and Maryland.
