If you’re using drugs, or are with someone who is using, these are the signs and symptoms to watch out for. If they happen, don’t leave things to chance, call 911 immediately. Canada’s new Good Samaritan law can protect you. For step by step instructions on what to do in the event you suspect someone is overdosing, watch Ask a Paramedic if you have a naloxone kit follow the SAVE ME steps and instructions.
