Support and connection for those impacted by addictive behaviors.
Addiction is a complex disease – and West Virginia is ground zero of the national epidemic. With the highest drug overdose fatality rates in the country, the impact on our state, our communities and families and our future, is nearly incalculable, but hope remains.
Naloxone is a life-saving medication that can reverse an overdose from opioid, including heroin, fentanyl and prescription opioid medications, when given in time. The WVU Collegiate Recovery Program has installed 50 opioid overdose rescue kits, known as “Naloxboxes,” across campus. These kits contain two doses of naloxone and training materials instructing individuals how to administer the drug during an overdose.
WELL WVU is currently able to provide WVU students with fentanyl test strips - no questions asked, no identifying information required, and no interaction with anyone during pick-up. If you would like to request fentanyl test strips, just complete this form.
