REVIVE is the Opioid Overdose and Naloxone Education (OONE) program for the Commonwealth of Virginia. REVIVE provides training to professionals, stakeholders, and others on how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose emergency with the administration of naloxone (Narcan ®).
Naloxone is a prescription medication and an opioid antagonist drug that reverses the effects that opioids have in the brain. When a person overdoses on opioids, the opioid overwhelms specific receptors in the brain, slowly decreasing respiration and heart rate before finally stopping it altogether. Each person will receive Naloxone Nasal Spray after the training.
Starting in December 2020, the Friends of Prevention Coalition will offer REVIVE Training to individuals and large groups virtually.
