Overdoses in America

100 people die from drug overdoses in America every day and about half of
those deaths involve opioid drugs—including prescription painkillers and
heroin.

The good news is that every overdose is preventable.

Here are four actions you can take—right now—to prevent the
next opioid overdose death.

Will you please share them?

 
  1. If you know someone struggling with the disease of addiction, let them know help is available. Give them the treatment referral line phone number: 1-800-662-HELP (4357). It’s open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  2. Learn the signs and symptoms of an overdose, and what actions to take. Download and print this simple pocket card that explains how to resuscitate someone who’s overdosing.

  3. Get rid of all unused, expired, or unneeded prescription drugs at home. Here are instructions on how to dispose of unused medicines. The DEA
    is also hosting a National Take-Back Day on April 26
    —find a take-back
    site in your neighborhood.

  4. Download and share this helpful guide on how to prevent opioid deaths in your community. The guide contains tips and steps that first responders, prescribers, people in recovery and their family members can take to save lives.

Please share these four steps with others.

No one person can end this overdose epidemic alone, but
together, we can—and will—save lives.
