Naloxone is being distributed by the Chesterfield Health District, which serves residents in Chesterfield County, Powhatan County and the City of Colonial Heights, in partnership with Chesterfield Mental Health Support Services and other local community services boards.
In response to the public health emergency, and in partnership with Virginia’s Board of Pharmacy, Department of Health Professions and Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, Dr. Levine has issued a standing order that allows all Virginians to obtain the drug naloxone.
The standing order serves as a prescription written for the general public, rather than specifically for an individual, removing a barrier to access. The standing order does not remove the cost of the drug if residents obtain naloxone through a private pharmacy.
Community members who have already completed the REVIVE! training program may pick up the free naloxone medication during walk-in clinics beginning on Friday, January 15th.
Clinics will be held on the first and fourth Friday of each month from 2 to 3 p.m., excluding state holidays.
The clinics will be held at the Chesterfield County Health Department:
9501 Lucy Corr Circle
Chesterfield, VA 23832
Please call 804-748-1691 for more information.
Please note that no appointment is needed. To receive the medication, individuals must bring proof that they have completed the training, such as a REVIVE! Card or REVIVE! trainer certificate.
