We are pleased to announce that Naloxone, which can temporarily reverse an opioid overdose for up to 20 minutes, is now available on site at DA. Drug related deaths remain a huge concern and Naloxone is an important part of the programme of activities in place to prevent drug related deaths in Scotland. New legislation means that people can come to DA and get the kits here rather than have to go a pharmacy to collect them. Also, the new legislation makes it easier for family members to get kits.
Luan Grugeon said: “a drug related death leaves a family devastated. Getting more Naloxone kits into our communities prevents deaths occurring and I would encourage anyone who has a friend or loved one with a history of using heroin or methadone to come and get their free kit from DA”.
For your free Naloxone kit drop in and see us at 7 Hadden Street, Aberdeen.
