Protect yourself and others from #opioidoverdose with the following tips:

- If you are taking drugs alone, start slow. Use less than your normal amount to test the strength.
- If you are with friends, make an overdose plan. Tell them where you keep your Narcan® and make sure they know how to use it. Take turns in case one of you needs Narcan®.
