REVIVE! 2019


Nearly 600 Virginians died from opioid overdoses in the first half of 2018. In the past few years, drug overdoses took more lives than car crashes or guns. In an effort to stem the rising tide of deaths, Rappahannock Area Community Services Board now offers REVIVE! training.

One class participant shared:

“I had no idea about the benefits of naloxone helping in an opioid overdose or how important those first three minutes were in responding to an overdose. I'm thankful for this free training and the free naloxone so that I am better prepared to help if needed.”

REVIVE!  helps individuals learn how to recognize an opioid overdose and how to use naloxone to reverse an overdose. Anyone who has a friend or relative using opioids should attend the training. Each attendee will receive a free REVIVE! kit provided by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services. The kit includes the supplies needed to administer naloxone. The opioid antidote can be purchased at pharmacies without a prescription in Virginia.  

Individuals who complete the training will also be able to receive a free dose of naloxone through the Rappahannock Area Health District.
