If the person regains consciousness, roll him/her to the recovery position.
The victim may vomit, so turning the person on his side is 
very important.

Keep the victim lying on his or her left side with a hand under the head. The victim may vomit or be combative.


The effects of the naloxone may wear off before the effects of the opioid so the person may return to overdose.


• Victim must receive medical attention at a medical facility following overdose.


Stay with the victim and provide first aid until EMS arrives.
