August 31st is International Overdose Awareness Day
There are many events taking place across the world to mark 31st August as International Overdose Awareness Day.
Often on our calls we are asked about drugs, what they are and what you may have found in your home. You may want to know more about drugs and about risk reduction, and how to react and know when someone may have taken an overdose.
To mark this day, we’ve put together a Drugs, Risk Reduction and Overdose information booklet. We talk about the most common drugs we are asked about, their effects, signs of use, risks and risk reduction, and we discuss overdose awareness.
