The opioid epidemic continues to be one of the largest public health crises of our lifetime. In 2020 alone, there were over 1,900 deaths in the state of Virginia. An opioid overdose can happen anywhere, anytime, and you could save a life!
Any person, no matter their age, income, or any other demographic, can experience an overdose and/or develop an opioid use disorder. Knowing how to respond and possibly reverse an overdose can save someone's life and might help them access needed resources for recovery.
Come learn about opioids, addiction, and how to respond in an emergency. You will receive a REVIVE! emergency response kit and the opioid overdose reversal drug, Narcan (Naloxone), to take with you free of charge.
