Important Update

(Updated 6/17/2020)
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, NRVCS has cancelled all of our scheduled in-person REVIVE! trainings. Instead, we invite you to watch our brief training video below to learn more about Narcan, the nasal spray form of Naloxone, and how to administer the overdose reversal medication.

Community members can still request a complementary supply of Narcan. Unfortunately, we are NOT currently able to distribute Narcan by mail. If you would like to receive a supply of Narcan, email us at info@nrvcs.org.

GET HELP: If you live in the New River Valley and you or someone you know is struggling with addiction to opioids, or other substances, please know that help is available. Call NRVCS at 540-961-8400 to schedule an assessment. (These are being conducted over the phone or virtually during the COVID-19 pandemic.)

 

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 and the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services’ 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.

UPCOMING TRAININGS
All in-person trainings have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additional trainings can be scheduled, as requested. If your business or organization would be interested in a REVIVE! training, please contact Mike Wade at mwade@nrvcs.org.
