Blood Tribe police warn of highly concentrated drugs after 15 overdoses in 1 day | CBC News

Blood Tribe police are warning the community about a highly concentrated batch of drugs after “an alarming amount” of overdoses in a single day.

Since noon Friday, police and EMS have responded to 15 overdoses and one person has died, Insp. Farica Prince said in an emailed release.

“Community members are asked to check on their vulnerable loved ones at this time,” Prince wrote.

Prince said free Narcan kits — a nasal spray version of the opioid antidote naloxone — are available at the Blood Tribe Detox Centre in Standoff.

Between April and June this year, more than three people died of opioid overdoses each day in Alberta — twice the rate recorded from January to March.

“Vulnerable populations, including those with substance use issues, have faced even more adversity in accessing the supports and services they depend on, increasing stress and anxiety,” the province’s quarterly report reads.

Police are asking anyone with information about the import or sale of illicit drugs to contact Blood Tribe police at 403-737-3800, [email protected], or Crime Stoppers anonymously.
