Overdoses linked to Benzo’s - Reminder that Benzo-related overdoses are still occurring a lot at Overdose Prevention Sites. If someone is unconscious but still breathing and it is a suspected benzo related OD, there is no need for naloxone. Be sure to call 911 and report that the OD is suspected from Benzo’s so the Emergency services know to bring the correct medication. Please use the OD Response Management guide recently sent out when addressing overdoses from suspected Benzo or similar substances. This can be found and downloaded from the COP blog. If you wish for this to be sent to you separately please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Drugs tested this week in the West End, Vancouver - someone who bought what they thought was Ketamin, turned out to have 80% cocaine and 20% meth.
