You can save a life by getting a free naloxone kit and learning how to use it. Anyone can take the training, which takes about 10 minutes.
Naloxone reverses an overdose from opioids. It’s safe to give. And the Good Samaritan Drug Overdose Act protects those at the scene of an overdose who call 911 to get medical assistance from being charged with possession (for your own personal use) of an illegal substance.
Overdoses can happen in unexpected situations: at a community event, social gathering, or even at home with a friend or family member. You might not always know if someone is at risk for an overdose – many people who use drugs don’t tell others because of stigma.
The Sea to Sky Community Action Team is a local multi-agency collaborative that was formed in response to the overdose crisis. This local team has been meeting since September and has identified a few priority areas on which to focus:
- Overdose Prevention Strategies
- Trauma-Informed education and awareness of the general public
- Treatment and Recovery
