Moms Stop The Harm, a network of Canadian mothers and families whose loved ones have died due to substance use or hope for recovery, supports the new warning sticker and patient handout. But they also see a missed opportunity. 
Petra Schulz of Edmonton called for a separate, highlighted information sheet to move beyond signs and symptoms of an overdose to share vital information on how to respond. 
"This is like basic first aid and should be available to all," Schulz said. 
Schulz also believes naloxone kits should be dispensed with potent opioids such as oxycodone and hydromorphone to save lives.
