Make the Call

Friends are family. Be there when they need you most. Learn the signs of alcohol poisoning and drug overdose, and if a friend or fellow student exhibits just one, get help.   

The signs of alcohol poisoning and drug overdose, can include a combination of:

  • lack of coordination
  • inability to stand
  • confusion
  • slurred speech
  • erratic behavior
  • slow or shallow breathing
  • pale or clammy skin
  • vomiting while passed out

MIT’s practice is to treat this as a health and safety matter, not as a disciplinary incident. The call will be responded to by qualified EMTs.

Know the signs. Make the call. Save a life.

DIAL 100 (campus phone) or (617) 253-1212.
