As the opioid epidemic grips the nation and on the local level, the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Service Board announced plans this week to expand their opioid reversal training in Reston.

The one-hour, free course will be held on Friday, June 29 at 10 a.m. at the CSB’s Northwest Center (1850 Cameron Glen Drive).

Attendees will learn to administer naloxone and what to do in an overdose emergency, along with safety plans to help individuals prevent overdose in the event of a relapse. Free naloxone will also be given to attendees who meet eligibility requirements.

CSB has offered community training in Fairfax County since 2015.  The training series started as CSB partnered with the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services and the Chris Atwood Foundation.

    We wouldnt need opoid reversal training if the FBI did their job in tracking down, capturing and bringing those animals to justice. Lets face it, the FBI has become another numb federal agency that can easily be dissolved without anyone noticing the difference.

    As for the addicts, tough. But if what Crazy Larry says is true opoids dont even top the charts when it comes to addictiveness, say compared to meth.

    An addict desperate find the cure decides to go to the monastery. In the courtyard he meets a monk under a tree. With desperation he asks the monk for help. The monk stretches out one arm to reach one of the tree branches and yells out LET ME GO LET ME GO LET ME GO

      Bizarre comment, to say the least. Can you name a time when the FBI was “on top of its game” and we had zero drugs in the streets? I’m sure we’d all like to know about it so we can figure out what worked so effectively at that time and implement those same policies and strategies today.

        I hope you are not defending the racist policies of the past.
