What to do in an emergency
Drugs are unpredictable. They can affect people in different ways. As there is no quality control for illicit drugs, there is no way of knowing their content or strength.
Call 000 for an ambulance immediately if there is even the slightest risk that someone is having an unusual reaction to a drug.
Emergency services will only contact a parent or guardian if the person is under the age of 18 and taken to hospital.
Emergency services will only notify police if there is a risk to their own personal safety or if someone dies.
