Overdose Signs

  • Person is not responsive

  • Fingertips or lips turn blue or grey

  • Breathing is slow, shallow, or has stopped

  • Person is gurgling or making snoring noises

What can you do if you see an opioid overdose?

  • Call 911

  • If you have naloxone, give the person naloxone and perform rescue breathing

  • If no response after 2-3 minutes, give a second dose of naloxone

  • Do not leave the person alone (help will arrive)

  • If the person starts to breathe or becomes more alert, lay the person in the recovery position: put the person slightly on the left side so that their body is supported by a bent knee with their face turned to the side and bottom arm reaching out to stabilize the position.
