Finding help for alcohol and other drug problems

– go back

It is always safer not to use drugs, but there are ways you can help them to reduce their risks.

  • Encourage them not to go out on their own
  • Keep the lines of communication open and let them know you will always be there for them
  • If the person you are caring for is using opiates e.g. heroin, codeine, oxycodone, morphine; find out about naloxone and how to use it in the case of overdose.
