What are the signs of an overdose?
NARCAN can reverse an opioid overdose. Stacey demonstrates the NARCAN injection on this award-winning episode of DOPE HAUS radio.
Not every overdose is fentanyl related. Not every overdose can be treated with NARCAN, a victim may be passed out for many reasons. Rescue breathing is essential first aid that can help until paramedics arrive on scene. Download the overdose survival guide from towardtheheart.com
Bass Coast does not offer on-site drug testing. It’s strongly encouraged to purchase your own testing kit or practice abstinence for the weekend. British Columbia’s current overdose crisis is the riskiest time in history to casually experiment with illicit substances.
Some drug combinations may be fatal. Check a simplified list of drug combinations and do extensive research before experimenting.
DOPE HAUS does not condone nor condemn drug use. Information above is for educational purposes only.
This episode is dedicated to every family affected by British Columbia’s overdose crisis.
