Hokie Wellness to offer summer REVIVE! opioid overdose emergency response trainings

From: Hokie Wellness

The opioid epidemic is a public health crisis and has claimed the lives of over 1900 Virginians in the year of 2020 alone. Although the current pandemic remains an emergency, the risk for overdose does not decrease, and in fact, typically increases during times of stress and crisis.

Any person, no matter their age, income, or any other demographic, can experience an overdose or develop and struggle with addiction. Knowing how to respond and possibly reverse an opioid overdose can save someone’s life and might help them access needed resources for recovery! 

Come learn more about opioids, addiction, and how to respond in an emergency by taking a "REVIVE!" training with Hokie Wellness. You will receive a REVIVE emergency response kit and the opioid overdose reversal drug, Narcan (Naloxone), to take with you free of charge. More information and instruction for use of Naloxone is provided during the training.
