Overdose Emergencies

If you or someone you are with has a medical emergency, or you suspect an overdose, dial 911 immediately.

Accidental drug overdose deaths are now the leading cause of death in the United States, exceeding even motor vehicle accidents among people ages 25-64.

The chance of surviving an overdose, like that of surviving a heart attack, depends greatly on how fast one receives medical assistance. Research has demonstrated that most witnesses to a drug overdose fail to call 911 for fear of police involvement.

The state of North Carolina has enacted Good Samaritan legislation to help protect those who call for emergency assistance on behalf of overdose victims.  If you are with someone experiencing a medical emergency, or suspect a drug overdose, dial 911 immediately.

First Contact is located in Henderson County, NC.  We assist individuals and families primarily in Hendersonville and surrounding areas in the WNC region.
