Alert: Recent Increase in Overdose

 

As of November 11, there have been a higher number of overdoses in the Winnipeg than usual in last 24 hours.

 

These overdoses have been mainly in the Downtown and Point Douglas areas.

 

This suggests that there is a drug in circulation that either has stronger opioids in it or that people are taking more of it. Winnipeg Fire and Paramedic Services (WFPS) has noted that higher than usual levels of Naloxone have had to be used in response to stabilize people who have overdosed.

 

It is important to be aware of this and to advise users to watch for overdose reactions among themselves and their peers and to have an overdose plan.

 

If anyone has symptoms of an opioid-related overdose call 911 immediately and if possible administer Naloxone.   It is possible that the naloxone kits do not have a sufficient dose of the antidote to reverse overdoses of the drug that is going around.

 

Street Connections (204 981-0742) provides take-home naloxone kits to people who use drugs. Kits and training are available on Friday and Saturday evening from the van and Monday to Friday in the office.  Please allow for about 45 minutes to get the kit.
 

You can also connect with the pharmacies listed below if you need Naloxone over the long weekend.

Your schedule says you are on the streets until 12:30 am, but when I called there was no answer.

The schedule is a guide to tell you where you can find us.

 

Sometimes we are not able to follow the schedule exactly. For a number of reasons we may be late, miss a stop, or have to shut down early.
