Opioids (downers), including Fentanyl, are nervous system depressants that result in a lower heart rate, drowsiness, slow or slurred speech, small pupils, and a slower breathing rate. This can lead to an overdose.
If you ever have to leave someone alone that you think might be overdosing, put them in the recovery position and call 911.
Take home naloxone kits are available at pharmacies, walk-in clinics, and other community agencies. You’ll be trained on how to use it, and how to respond to an overdose.
There is a new form that you can complete and submit anonymously. You can also print it off in pdf format and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
