Several organizations could help save lives.
The Prince William County Community Services, the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, the Prevention Alliance of Greater Prince William, and the Chris Atwood Foundation are hosting several REVIVE! training sessions.
The 90-minute training seek to teach participants about opioids, the lifesaving drug Naloxone, and how to help someone who is experiencing an opioid overdose, according to a release.
Participants will receive a REVIVE! kit that contains supplies needed in case of an overdose.
They will also learn how they can receive access to Naloxone — also known as Narcan.
Free trainings will be offered on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Manassas Park Community Center; on February 12 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the community center; and February 27 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the McCoart Building in Woodbridge.
Those interested in attending a training can sign up online.
