Naloxone is a widely available medication that can reverse an opioid overdose temporarily. It has been a vital tool in combatting the toxic drug crisis since B.C. launched the Take Home Naloxone program in 2012. Anyone using street drugs is at risk of a toxic drug poisoning. If there is a chance you may witness or experience a toxic drug poisoning, you can get a free Naloxone kit to carry with you. Many pharmacies provide them, as do health centres and community agencies. You do not need a prescription and you do not need to provide your name. Naloxone is very safe. It does not get you “high” and does not cause dependence. “Naloxone is a really important life-saving tool for me to have when I’m out in the community. I encourage everyone to get Naloxone training and either have a kit or know where there is one nearby. You could save a life!” says Dr. Carol Fenton, a medical health officer with Interior Health.

Submitted by the Canadian Mental Health Association  You might have a thousand Facebook friends or followers on Instagram. Or maybe you have friends the “old-fashioned” way. In any case, we know that having a good community of friends is about the quality – and not the quantity – of our relationships. And communication is at the core. So, if we want to strengthen our relationships, practising the art of listening is an effective strategy.
