Narcan Usage

Common Signs of Overdose

  • Small, constricted “pinpoint pupils” 

  • Fall asleep or losing consciousness

  • Slow, weak or no breathing 

  • Choking or gurgling sounds 

  • Limp body 

  • Cold, clammy and/or discolored skin 

What should you do if you think someone is overdosing?

Don’t think that someone is just high because they could be in a life or death situation. Treat the situation like an overdose and do the following immediately: 

  1. Call 911

  2. Administer the can of NARCAN® (pick up a can for free from any of our health department locations to keep with you)
  3. Try to keep the person awake and breathing 

  4. Lay the person on their side to prevent choking
  5. Stay with them until emergency workers arrive 

Are Your Drugs Deadly?

Fentanyl test strips can help prevent overdose because they tell you if your drugs contain a deadly opioid like fentanyl. We’ve seen this added to heroin, meth, cocaine, and pills. You should use these test strips on all drugs, not just heroin. But, understand that there’s still a risk, even with these test strips as it may not pick up all relatives of fentanyl. If you would like to test your drugs, inquire about picking up these test strips at your local health department.
