Steps for Safer Drug Use

Very strong opioids are being mixed into all types of drugs, including heroin, cocaine, counterfeit or fake prescription pills, meth, and cannabis.

Follow these steps for safer drug use:

Overdose Spike Alerts

We watch hospital and ambulance data for unexpected increases, or spikes, in overdoses. A change in the local drug supply may mean you have an increased risk of overdose during that time.

We can send you alerts when overdoses in our community increase.
