Can someone be arrested for drug use after being treated for an overdose?
If someone is treated for an overdose at a hospital, are they then arrested afterwards?
Thank you for asking this interesting question.
Doctors first responsibility is to treat the patient. We are bound by the law to "notify" the CNB, but what CNB want to do with the information, I don't know.
But so far, none of our patients have been arrested in the hospital grounds.
