Overdose Information

recoverynormallWhile we hope that we one day get to a stage where every opiate user has easy access to naloxone, we have to understand that basic overdose information is essential. Here we have a collection of general overdose related resources can be used to complement naloxone programmes, starting of course with this great video on how to put someone into the recovery position.
