City of Alexandria to Offer Free Narcan Training

Alexandria is offering free Narcan training, which teaches members of the public how to spot and reverse an opioid overdose, starting tomorrow.

Narcan is a prescription medicine that can reverse an opioid overdose through injection or intranasal mist. Last year, Alexandria Police Department Lt. Mike Kochis was credited with saving the life of an unconscious man in Carlyle with a Narcan dose.

Participants in the class will also receive a free medical kid with Narcan/Naloxone included. According to a press release from the City of Alexandria:

The Department of Community and Human Services hosts free REVIVE! training sessions to teach any member of the public about opioids, how opioid overdoses happen, the risk factors for opioid overdoses, and how to respond to an opioid overdose emergency using Narcan/Naloxone. If you or a loved one are prescribed opioid painkillers, or are taking opioids, you should take this training and have Narcan/Naloxone on hand.

No RSVP or registration for the class is required.

The program is offered twice monthly: on the second Tuesday of each month from 10-11 a.m. and on the fourth Thursday, from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

The classes will be held in the Department of Community and Human Services (2355 Mill Road).
