Opioid Reversal Training Now Offered in Reston

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.
