Public Health Advisory
Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Due to recent reports of an increase in overdoses, Lambton Public Health urgently reminds those who use street drugs - in particular opioids - and their caregivers:

  • NEVER use drugs alone
  • always carry Narcan®

Free Narcan® is available from Lambton Public Health, local pharmacies and several partner agencies including Community Health Centres.

In the event of an overdose, always call 911 even when Narcan® is used.
