Opioid Community Resources

With the increase of opioid overdoses in Ottawa over the last few months, Ottawa Public Health (OPH) offers the following resources that may be of help:

  • The OPH Overdose Resources pages provide a growing collection of opioid and overdose related resources.
  • offers general information about overdoses, naloxone and fentany; links to pharmacies that carry naloxon; and locations to drop off used or expired medications
  • has an opioid specific page with information of interest to parents, such as how to recognize an opioid overdose; how to talk to youth about drugs; where to seek help and more.
  • The Secure Your Meds campaign offers resources to promote the importance of safely disposing of their medications to reduce the number of prescription medication-related overdoses.
