Dosing or overdoing?

1 minute read

As part of International Overdose Awareness Day, we’re spreading our ‘Dozing or Overdosing?’ campaign throughout Bristol, helping people to spot opioid overdoses (most commonly heroin) and encouraging people to feel more confident in the event of an emergency.

The campaign continues to highlight the wider availability of Naloxone, which reverses opioid overdoses.

At BDP, we are amongst the top three areas in England supplying Naloxone and we have been continuing to roll out training of this life-saving medication.

We would like to say another big thank you to our staff who have been going above-and-beyond the call of duty, attending over 15 overdoses and administering Naloxone.


If you are at risk of overdose, or you know someone who is, get in contact to receive your free Naloxone kit and training.
