In support of International Overdose Awareness Day we are taking to the streets to talk about drug overdoses and how we can prevent them. As well as taking some time to remember those who have been lost to overdose. 

We will be raising awareness of signs and symptoms of overdose, how to prevent one and what to do if one occurs. As well as, offering first aid advice & information from St John Ambulance, promoting the correct use of Prenoxad pens and signposting to the various services across the city who promote recovery with colleagues from:

Cascades Creative Recovery Cafe

CGL 

Brighton & Hove Council

We will be giving out these resources on the day:

And a wide range of overdose resources are available by clicking here

 

Remember:

 

1.  Drugs fall into three categories; depressants (slow down), stimulants (speed up), hallucinogens (trippy). You can overdose from any of them

2.  Depressants* cause the most deaths

3.  Don’t mix, especially not a combination of depressants

 

*Depressants include alcohol, heroin, fentanyl, Xanax, methadone, GBL & GHB, benzodiazepine’s (Diazepam) & others; they can depress breathing and heart rate until they eventually stop, resulting in death
