Sign-up for virtual opioid overdose response 'REVIVE!' trainings with Hokie Wellness

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 suffer from 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 information on several different options (including through the mail) for obtaining the opioid overdose reversal drug, Narcan (Naloxone), free of charge.
