Loudoun County continues to host training sessions on how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose. The next Revive! sessions are scheduled for: 

  • Thursday, February 28, 2019
  • Thursday, March 28, 2019 
  • Thursday, April 25, 2019

All classes will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the offices of the Loudoun County Department of Mental Health, Substance Abuse and Developmental Services (MHSADS) at 906 Trailview Boulevard in Leesburg. The free, one-hour training covers:

  • Signs of opioid overdose
  • How to respond to an opioid overdose emergency with the administration of naloxone, a drug that can be used to treat narcotic overdoses in emergency situations. 
  • Any registered participant completing the training will be eligible to receive free naloxone nasal spray that evening from the Loudoun County Health Department.

The training is open to the public; however, classroom space is limited and advanced registration is required. Anyone who uses opioids or knows someone who is using opioids is encouraged to attend. Pre-registration is first come, first served. Those interested in attending may register online at www.loudoun.gov/revive.

The trainings are part of the REVIVE! program, which is the Opioid Overdose and Naloxone Education program for the Commonwealth of Virginia. The Loudoun County Community Services Board, MHSADS and the Loudoun County Health Department are sponsoring the local training session. 

For more information about the opioid overdose reversal training, contact the MHSADS Prevention and Intervention Program at 571-258-3365 or by email.
