We will invite clients to light a candle for their loved one and say a little prayer or tell a little story about them. So often there is no closure when an overdose occurs, this creates an opportunity for people to say goodbye.
We will also take note of how many people have direct experience of overdose throughout the week, most clients have either survived an overdose themselves or been there when someone they know has overdosed. This is to raise awareness of how common it is adn easily and quickly it can happen.
We will be educating on ways to avoid overdose and strategies on how to keep your mates safe. If our application for Naloxone administration is approved we will have those out for the community.
