Reducing Harm:

The concept of harm reduction acknowledges that completely abstaining from drugs or alcohol isn’t a realistic solution for everyone, but harm reduction efforts attempt to decrease the health, social and economic consequences of drug and alcohol abuse.

Harm reduction strategies include:​
  • Realize an individual may not be ready to sto using today, but with continued engagement (such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous) he or she may be willing to try treatment eventually.
  • Seek out Syringe Services Programs to provide clean needles and get used needles off the street.
  • Get trained on administering naloxone and keep a supply of this life-saving medication (CPR training is also recommended). Note that “Good Samaritan” laws grant civil immunity for administering the medicine to someone they reasonable believe is overdosing on an opiod.
  • Use fentanyl testing strips to test the presence of fentanyl or related drugs in the street supply of opioids. Search the web for suppliers.

​Naloxone is a proven tool in the battle against drug abuse and overdose death. When too much of an opiod medication is taken, it can slow breathing to a dangerously low rate. When breathing slows too much, overdose death can occur. Naloxone can reverse this potentially fatal situation by allowing the person to breathe normally again.

Naloxone is not a dangerous medicine. However, proper training is required by law. Any time an overdose is suspected, first responsders should be notified by calling 911 immediately and stay with the patient until first responsders arrive. It is important to know that some patients may wake disoriented or agitated after receiving naloxone. This is a good sign but calling 911 is still very important to help the person survive.
Naloxone is only a temporary reversal. It’s extremely important to seek medical care following an overdose.

Recognizing the signs of an overdose is critical for loved ones of an opioid user. Often families or friends have seen their loved one over-medicated in the past, so their current reaction has been to let them “sleep it off.” this complacency could mean death.

Signs of an Overdose:
  • Unresponsive to shouting
  • Unresponsive to pain stimulation such as rubbing the chest with knuckles
  • Unconsciousness
  • Slow and shallow breathing or not breathing
  • Pale, clammy skin, loss of color
  • Blue, purple, or gray skin, especially around lips and fingernails
  • Faint or NO pulse
  • Extremely small “pinpoint” pupils

In the even of a known or suspected overdose:​
  1. Administer naloxone (an extremely effective medication that stops opioid overdoses and saves lives!)
  2. Call 911
  3. Watch the person closely. If breathing does not resume within one minute, administer naloxone again
  4. Wait with the person for Emergency Services to arrive
