REVIVE! is the Opioid Overdose and Naloxone Education program for the Commonwealth of Virginia. REVIVE! training shows participants how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose emergency with the administration of Naloxone (Narcan ®). (Learn more about naloxone here.)

REVIVE! trainings are provided at no cost and participants receive a free prescription of Narcan.

In the New River Valley, REVIVE! trainings are being offered by NRVCS, in partnership with the New River Health District. Trainings and Narcan kits are made possible through a grant from the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and the Office of Behavioral Health Wellness.

The training for community members (sometimes referred to as the “lay rescuer training”) typically takes just over an hour.

Monthly REVIVE! trainings are offered the third Friday of each month at 9:00 a.m.
