‘Don’t Ignore a Snore’



The Wales Drug & Alcohol Helpline, also known as DAN 24/7 is hosted by the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board with funding provided by the Welsh Government.

It is a free and bilingual telephone helpline providing a single point of contact for anyone in Wales wanting further information and / or help relating to drugs and / or alcohol.

The service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The helpline assists individuals, their families, carers, and support workers within the drug and alcohol field to access appropriate local and regional services.

Following a number of drug poisoning fatalities where witnesses have reported that they believed friends were just sleeping, as they could be heard snoring, DAN 24/7 have produced a short animation called ‘Don’t Ignore A Snore’. It is a short harm reduction film regarding respiratory depression following the use of Central Nervous System Depressant drugs.

Here is the link to the film in English:
