Opioid Overdose Reversal Training Event on June 6th


Drug overdose has become the #1 cause of accidental death in the U.S. Mark Atwood, a member of Pender, would like to make you aware of an important event being sponsored by The Chris Atwood Foundation (“CAF”).

Help save the lives of those who overdose on opioids such as heroin or prescription pain-killers. Virginia has just adopted a law making it legal for individuals to obtain Naloxone (a/k/a “Narcan”) without a prescription.This drug, if administered promptly, can save a life by reversing the effects of opioids.(Similar, though slightly different, laws are in effect in DC and MD.)

CAF is providing the required training in the use of Naloxone, and can make available free doses to those needing financial assistance.This will take place Saturday, June 6, at 2-4pm on the Annandale campus of Northern VA Community College, CA Building, Room 302.

If you have an opioid addict in your home – or might — or know anyone who does, this can be life-saving. To register, please click on this link. To learn more about The Chris Atwood Foundation, click on this link to their website.
