Get Help: A true overdose is a medical emergency requiring immediate attention. After the emergency is over, then we look to find out how it happened. Is this part of a substance abuse problem? Are there memory problems such that the person doesn't recall how many pills they took? Is this a suicide attempt? All of these are important questions that will lead you to the next step.
