The opioid epidemic is a public health crisis and has been in the forefront of the news for a few years now. Any person, no matter their age, income, or any other demographic, can experience and suffer from addiction. Knowing how to respond and possibly reverse an opioid overdose can save someone’s life and might help them access needed resources for recovery. Come learn more about opioids, addiction, and how to respond in an emergency. You will receive the opioid overdose reversal drug, Narcan (Naloxone), to take with you free of charge.
When should you be worried about you or a friend’s substance use?
Signs that alcohol, marijuana, or another substance could be having a negative impact on your life:
- Continued use despite negative effects on relationships, mental or physical health, or academics
- Having a high tolerance (needing more to achieve the desired effect)
- Stopping participation in activities you used to enjoy because of your use
- Using a substance as a way to cope with stress, mental or physical health concerns, grief, etc.
- Spending a great deal of time getting, using, or recovering from alcohol or another drug
