DRUG RISK AWARENESS

Jun 24, 2019

The Brantford Police Service continues to investigate and respond to calls involving citizens who have suffered apparent drug over doses and had to be treated medically. The Branford Police Service is reminding the community of the risks associated with drug use. If you choose to use, please use extreme caution as the drugs that you are using may contain other substances such as fentanyl.  If you are a new drug user you are particularly at risk should you use fentanyl or drugs cut with fentanyl.

Know what to do if you think someone is overdosing and call 9-1-1- immediately. If it’s available give the person naloxone. Naloxone is an emergency medication that reverses the effects of an overdose from opioids such as fentanyl, heroin, methadone, morphine. You can give naloxone while you wait for emergency services to arrive. Remember naloxone can temporarily reverse an overdose but it can wear off before the person has completely recovered. Always call 9-1-1 and be seen by a medical professional.  Even if you have taken drugs or have drugs on you, the Good Samaritan Law can protect you.

While we advise against using illicit drugs, people who choose to use should be sure to:
*never use alone
*start with a small amount
*not mix substances, including alcohol, as it increases risk of overdose
*call 911 right away if they think someone is overdosing
*make a plan and know how to respond in case of an overdose
*use where help is easily available
*be prepared to give breaths and/or administer Naloxone (Narcan) until help
arrives. Have a kit accessible at all times and KNOW how to use it.

Know the signs of an overdose:
*Can’t stay awake
*No strength or energy
*Cold, clammy skin
*Slow heartbeat
* Trouble breathing
*Slow, shallow breathing
*Gurgling or snoring sounds
*lips and/or fingernails blue or purple
*non-responsive to shouting
