If you overdosed, force yourself to vomit.
If your friend overdosed and they are still conscious
If your friend is unconscious

Collect anything that was involved in the drug use and try to identify the drugs that were taken.
Collect pills, vomit, syringes, pill containers, and anything else that can help the medical rescue workers identify the drug being taken.
Don't worry about turning in evidence to the medical staff or accurately stating the drugs that were taken. Be realistic. If your friend dies, you are f-cked. If you overdosed and you pass out, you may never wake up. Help the professionals help you!
