SRDTF have developed an Overdose Awareness poster, targeted at drug users, professionals and the general public for display around the region - GP surgeries, Pharmacies, Treatment Centres, Drug Projects, Clubs...and anywhere else for that matter.

The poster contains 6 different pieces of information:

1. Essential advice for the drug user - Always and Never

2. Possible signs of overdose

3. Information on the recovery position

4. QR Codes to a Free overdose app for iPhone and Android

5. Advice to call the emergency services if someone is in trouble

6. A place for local agencies to give their contact details if they offer drugs support.

Thanks to HSE Drug & Alcohol services and the regional Pharmacy Liaison Nurses for their help with this.
