We all need to play our small part in tackling and overcoming this big issue. We released an article a short while back, explaining how to help someone who has overdosed, information about naloxone and carrying an emergency naloxone kit and recognising the signs and symptoms of an overdose, other important charities and organisations that can provide help, support, training and more!
We are working with homeless and rough sleeping charities and organisations across Bournemouth & Poole on the 31st August to firstly, provide urgently needed support and assistance and secondly but just as importantly, raise awareness about overdosing on illicit drugs, prescription drugs and/or alcohol.
As we said yesterday, we would be submitting our application to turn the lights on The London Eye purple for International Overdose Awareness Day on the 31st August 2020.
We will continue to promote this vital cause until no one else dies from an overdose that is preventable & addictions that are treatable!
With overdose awareness day coming up on 31st August 2020, it’s vital that we share this vital information with everyone you know so that you can do your bit to save a life!
