Overdose is the leading cause of death for the 15,000 injection drug users in San Francisco. The majority of these deaths are preventable. This compassionate short video follows two drug users through a groundbreaking program that teaches the signs of drug overdose, and the basic CPR needed to save lives. DOPE (Drug Overdose Prevention and Training) works in needle exchanges, shelters and SRO hotels, as well as with the police, addressing the needs of the often forgotten casualties of the 'war on drugs.' In conjunction with the city's Department of Public Health, the DOPE project takes the bold step of prescribing the opiate antidote Narcan (naloxone - usually only carried by paramedics) directly to drug users.
