Overdose Awareness

According to the CDC, recognizing an opioid overdose can be difficult. When in doubt, treat the situation like an overdose—you could save a life. Do not leave the person alone and call 911 or seek medical care for the individual immediately. Signs may include any of the following:

  • Small, constricted “pinpoint pupils”
  • Falling asleep or loss of consciousness
  • Slow, shallow breathing
  • Choking or gurgling sounds
  • Limp body
  • Pale, blue, or cold skin
