Warning for drug users

There have been seven overdose deaths on Vancouver Island in the past week including five on the South Island and four in the last 72 hours.
As a result, Island Health is issuing an urgent warning to individuals who are going to use illicit drugs – avoid using alone, and make sure someone is around who is willing and able to seek help if an overdose happens.

This warning applies to all methods of drug consumption injection, inhalation, snorting, smoking or consuming with alcohol.

Island Health is particularly concerned given the approaching weekend and this week s issuing of social service cheques.
