Hokie Wellness to offer REVIVE! Opioid Overdose Emergency Response Training this summer
From: Hokie Wellness
The opioid epidemic is a public health crisis and has been in the forefront of the news for a few years now. 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 and develop an addiction. Knowing how to respond to 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 response kit and Narcan (Naloxone), the opioid reversal drug, FREE of charge. More information and instruction for use of Naloxone is provided during the training.
