Mr Mange Goes Over People often think that heroin overdoses are caused by variations in heroin purity, but this isn't necessarily the case and many factors can be involved...
Overdose death is often predictable with known risk factors including:
not being in treatment
being older and having a long history of injecting
poly drug use, particularly alcohol and benzodiazepines
physical ill health; and
a recent history of non-fatal overdose.
Produced in conjunction with Lifeline publications, Mr Mange is black comedy about overdose death... Using a darkly comic cartoon style, Mr Mange goes over is a very serious look at the causes of heroin overdose and how to avoid it.
Warning: contains explicit language and drug references.
'Mr Mange Goes Over' is on the compilation DVDs 'Overdose - 4 short films', and is also be available for distribution to drug users on a DVD mounted on the inside cover of a comprehensive Overdose booklet.
