The REVIVE! training will be held on Thursday, August 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. in the Mary Riley Styles Public Library Conference Room.

Additional Program Information
REVIVE! is a program of the Commonwealth of Virginia that makes naloxone (Narcan®) available to lay rescuers to reverse opioid overdoses. Opioids include licit medications like hydrocodone and oxycodone, in addition to illicit drugs like heroin.

REVIVE! trains individuals on what to do and not do in an overdose situation, how to administer naloxone, and what to do afterwards. Each attendee also receives a free REVIVE! kit, which includes all the supplies needed to administer naloxone. The medication itself can be acquired at a pharmacy after completing the training. Attendees also receive a safety plan to help individuals prevent overdose if they relapse.

Following the training, CSB will dispense free naloxone to attendees who are residents of Fairfax County and Cities of Fairfax and Falls Church and who meet financial eligibility requirements. For more information, please contact Lauren Nickum (703-352-3431).

The Community Services Board has partnered with the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and the Chris Atwood Foundation to launch Project REVIVE! in our community.
