Don’t use alone. Get a naloxone kit. Overdose prevention sites save lives.
These are some of the thoughts that roll off the tongue of Lloyd Bryer as he addresses a crowd from the Gage Park band shell gathered for Overdose Awareness Day.

If you’re supposed to make lemonade when life gives you lemons, as they say, what are you supposed to do when life (or mom) skips the lemons and goes right to giving you the lemonade, already made?
