A campaign aimed at tackling the number of drug deaths in Dundee has been launched by a city-based charity.
Gowrie Care was in City Square as part of the “ODnotMe” initiative.
The campaign seeks to dispel myths around overdoses and help to train more people in the use and distribution of naloxone, an overdose reversal medication. Gowrie Care, part of the Hillcrest Group, supports people with physical and learning disabilities, mental health, autism, homelessness and addiction issues.
Senior support worker Christina Hutton said: “We want people to know that you can come into the centre and get training to use naloxone. The training takes 10 minutes and you can carry a naloxone kit and save lives.
“The whole point is you never know when you are going to come across somebody having an overdose.
“We really just want to raise awareness that you can help – even by phoning an ambulance.”
