CHARLESTON — A collaboration between the West Virginia Drug Intervention Institute, AETNA Better Health of West Virginia and the Vandalia Health Network will provide emergency opioid response boxes and naloxone throughout the state.

Opioid Naloxone Emergency Box, or ONEbox, overdose reversal kits, containing two doses of the opioid reversal medication naloxone, will be provided upon request to public schools and federally qualified health centers in West Virginia.

During a news conference Thursday at the West Virginia Drug Intervention Institute office in Charleston, representatives from the organizations also announced efforts to increase training and education on overdose response in every county in the state.
