What to Do

If you suspect that someone has alcohol poisoning - even if you don't see the classic signs and symptoms - it could be an emergency. Call someone for help.

If you are with someone who has been drinking a lot of alcohol and you see any of the signs or symptoms listed on this page, here's what to do:

  • Call for help. Never assume that a person will sleep off alcohol poisoning
  • Provide information. Type of alcohol and amount, if possible
  • Don't leave an unconscious person alone. Ssomeone with alcohol poisoning may choke on his or her own vomit and not be able to breathe.

Until Help Arrives

1. Raise the person's left arm above their head. Pull their right shoulder to roll them towards you

2. Roll them towards you, guarding their head from hitting the floor. The head should rest in front of the arm, not on it.

3. Tilt the head up to maintain airway. Tuck the nearest hand under the cheek to help keep the head tilted and raise the face off the floor.

4. Stay with them until help arrives. 


What Not to Do

DO NOT hesitate to call for help. The person's life is in danger.

DO NOT leave them alone. 

DO NOT leave them lying on their back

DO NOT give them anything to eat or drink
