24/7 Overdose Prevention Hotline
Provided by: NORS (National Overdose Response Service)
24/7 OVERDOSE PREVENTION HOTLINE: 1-888-688-6677 (Call or Text)
Offers a 24/7, bilingual, overdose prevention hotline to support individuals whenever and wherever they use drugs. Purpose of the hotline is to keep those who are using substances safe from overdose, while upholding substance users’ rights, dignity, respect and confidentiality. Run by peer support workers, volunteers, students, interns and supervisors.
NORS will co-create a safety plan with anyone who calls in. This may look like engaging a emergency community contact or dispatching local EMS (They try not to send 911 and request EMS dispatch only – never fire).

Individuals who want support while taking substances.
Call the hotline (1-888-688-6677) to be connected to a virtual overdose supervisor.
NOTE: Calls are anonymous, however they encourage people to give their address so NORS can send help, if needed. If individuals choose not to, NORS will still support them but they make it clear that there is nothing they can do.
