REVIVE! training to prevent opioid overdoses

REVIVE training teaches people how and when to administer naloxone to reverse a heroin/opioid overdose.

The federal government now reports that more people die from drug overdoses each year than in car crashes. In Northern Virginia, heroin-related deaths increased 164 percent (between 2011 and 2013). In Fairfax County, Fire and Rescue Department responded to 291 suspected heroin overdoses across the county (between 2011 and 2014). From 2013 to 2014, in Fairfax County, the number of deaths from heroin overdose doubled.

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.
