If you think someone is overdosing, call 9-1-1 right away, or your local emergency help line.
Give the person naloxone if it’s available. Naloxone is a medication that can temporarily reverse an overdose if it is administered right away. You can give naloxone while you wait for professional help to arrive.
An overdose is always an emergency. Even if someone has taken naloxone, it can wear off before the person has completely recovered from their overdose. They may need more than one dose. Always call for help.
Follow the directions in your naloxone kit and from the 9-1-1 or emergency help line operator.
