No one can know for certain how drugs will affect them, even if it is not their first time, there is always a risk. If someone is having a bad time on drugs they may be:
- overheated and dehydrated
- having difficulty with breathing
To get advice on what to do in these situations check out Talk to Franks Emergency help.
If you’re really worried about someone who has taken drugs, or if they fall unconscious, or are having difficulty breathing then call 999 and ask for an ambulance immediately. It might save a life and you won’t get into trouble.
