Alcohol and Other Drug Emergencies

What should I do if a friend had too much to drink or may have overdosed on drugs?

Call 911. Alcohol poisoning and drug overdoses can kill. If a friend has been drinking, especially a large amount over a short period of time, has hurt him or herself while drinking or has been taking drugs, look for these signs of possible alcohol poisoning/drug overdose:

  • Confusion, inability to stay awake or respond to shouting and shaking
  • Changes in behavior
  • Pale, cold or bluish skin
  • Passing out
  • Vomiting
  • Irregular or slow breathing

Don't leave him or her to "sleep it off"

  • Call 911 or Public Safety (585) 475-3333 immediately-you could save a life
  • Try to wake the person
  • Stay with the person-don't leave him or her alone
  • Try to roll the person onto his or her side-don't leave the person lying on his/her back-he/she could vomit and choke
Emergency Contraception

Emergency contraception is medication that can reduce the chance of pregnancy when taken after sex.

Sometimes called the "morning after pill," it does not absolutely need to be taken the next day.

It may be taken up to five (5) days after sex, but is best taken as soon as possible within the first three (3) days.

The sooner it is taken after unprotected sex, the more effective it will be in preventing pregnancy.
