Keep The Party Safe
The Keep The Party Safe website and campaign educate Coloradans on how to recognize when someone is experiencing an overdose, administer a naloxone rescue, and check drugs to see if fentanyl is present. When used properly, fentanyl test strips are reliable and can be an important step to take. Test strips can be found online, via syringe access programs, and Denver residents can order them directly from the county for free.
Moderation Management is a recovery program designed to help people enjoy a healthier relationship with alcohol. Unlike other recovery groups, Moderation Management is not focused on total sobriety. Instead, their goal is to help members achieve success by learning to enjoy alcohol in moderation.
The Moderation Management community offers in-person meetings and chat groups, support forums, and even groups on social media platforms like Facebook.
