Surrey Today Podcast: Fighting the Opioid Epidemic with Technology – Overdose Intervention App

In today’s episode, we had a chance to interview Upkar Tatlay. Among many other things, Tatlay is the creator of the Overdose Intervention app. During our 30 minutes together, we discussed the following:

Recent trends in the opioid epidemic, specifically how it is impacting people of all demographics and socio-economic backgrounds.

The rise of fentantyl, and deadly fentanyl concoctions.

The disproportionate impact of opioids on the South Asian community, and the South Asian community’s struggle with confronting mental health and substance abuse.

How the Overdose Intervention app provides a safe space for people to get the help they need, to prevent overdoses.

As mentioned on the podcast, both Upkar and the app can be found on the Overdose Intervention Website.
