Raising awareness of drug-related deaths in Scotland.

Our ODnotMe campaign was launched in 2018 to raise awareness about the tragic number of drug-related deaths in Scotland, in particular Dundee.

90% of drug overdoses are preventable with the use of Naloxone and knowing the signs and symptoms to look out for.

Frequently Asked Questions

Naloxone saves lives by reversing the effects of an opiate overdose.

Naloxone is a short-acting emergency response medication. It is injected into the outer thigh or upper arm with the effects lasting for approximately 20 minutes, so it is important to always call an ambulance.

Anyone aged 16 or over can receive a Naloxone kit and training on how to administer it at our Harm Reduction Service located at The Centre @SWR, 4 South Ward Road, Dundee. You don’t have to make an appointment, you can drop-in during our opening hours:

Monday: 9am – 5pm
Tuesday: 9am – 5pm
Wednesday: 9am – 5pm
Thursday: 9am – 5pm
Friday: 9am – 5pm
Sunday: 12 noon – 2.30pm

Each weekday we close for lunch from 12 noon – 12.30pm.

Training can take around an hour, and then a kit will be issued (one per person).

Of course! We offer free training either one-to-one or in a group.

Training takes around one hour.

If group training sessions are required, we can arrange for this to be carried out in an external venue.

Please contact fholt@hillcrestfutures.org.uk or call 01382 200532 to arrange this.

A witness was present at over half of all overdoses but no help was given. Would you know what to look out for?

  • Individual is unresponsive or unconscious
  • Shallow/slow/rasping breathing or snoring (sometimes called the ‘death rattle’)
  • Pinpoint pupils
  • Blue lips
  • Pale skin

Always call an ambulance if you are concerned about anyone. Carry Naloxone – it saves lives.
