Overdose Safety Plan

Keep safe. Prevent overdose.

My Safety Plan

I know that abstinence (not using) is the only way to be sure I don't overdose. But if I relapse, I will take these precautions to prevent overdose:

    • I know that after not using for a while, my tolerance will be lower. So I will avoid using large amounts of opioids, benzodiazepines, and/or alcohol.
    • I will not use drugs and alcohol together and will not mix drugs (including prescribed drugs).
    • I will take my prescription medications as prescribed and will not abuse them.
    • I will be careful where I get my drugs. I know the strength of the drug may differ among dealers.
    • I will try not to use alone so that I always have someone near who can help me if I overdose.
    • I will participate and encourage others to participate in a REVIVE! opioid overdose reversal training.
    • I will try not to use drugs by injection.
    • If I relapse, I agree to tell ____________________________________ and ask for help.
    • If I am in danger, or if someone I am with is in danger, I will call 911.

In a life-threatening emergency, call 911.
