Harm Reduction - Revive
- Fentanyl Patch 4 Patch Program

How Does the Revive Program Work?

The Revive program dispenses naloxone kits to eligible clients. To be eligible for Revive training, clients must be

  • current or past opioid users or;
  • Family and friends of people who are using opioids
  • 16 years of age and older
  • and complete 15 min overdose training

Naloxone Kit

Overdose Prevention:

  • Avoid mixing drugs with alcohol or benzodiazepines
    • Use one drug at a time, or use less of each drug if you are mixing
  • Use less drugs when tolerance is lower
    • Drug tolerance can decrease when someone has taken a break from using (treatment, jail).
  • Check if the drug looks, and smells normal
    • Inject a very small amount, or snort the first hit to test the strength
  • Never use alone
    • Use with a friend, leave a door unlocked

How not to respond to an overdose;

Do NOT: put the person in a bath/cold water
Why not? Could drown or put person into shock

Do NOT: make the person vomit
Why not? Could choke

Do NOT: slap to hard, kick them in the testicles, burn the bottom of their feet
Why not? Could cause serious harm

Do NOT: inject them with anything (saltwater, cocaine, milk, etc.) other than naloxone
Why not?  Could cause serious harm

Do NOT: let them sleep it off
Why not? Could stop breathing and die

It is important to keep in mind that the only effective way to reverse an overdose is by injecting naloxone and receiving medical attention (calling 911).
