For Immediate Release January 7, 2022
Free REVIVE! Opioid Overdose and Naloxone Education January 28th Northwestern Prevention Collaborative, in conjunction with Northwestern Community Services Board, will offer a free, virtual REVIVE! Training on January 28th from 12:30 pm to 1:30 pm. The one-hour online class provides an overview of how to recognize an opioid overdose, respond to an opioid emergency, and administer life-saving naloxone. Opioids are highly potent, making it relatively easy for accidental overdoses to happen. This training is ideal for those who have loved ones who use or have used opioids in the past, as well as those who have personally used or are using opioids. Those who work in public places or businesses where overdoses may occur can be part of the defense against overdoses, and they are also encouraged to attend this free training. All attendees will receive two free doses of Narcan by mail. To register, visit nwprevention.org/revive
