The main character Rue ODs before the very first episode, it's shown as flashbacks later, more that one time if I'm not mistaken (in which her younger sister finds her unconscious). Then, Jules' special episode also shows Rue unconscious after taking drugs in the locked bathroom. There's an intense scene where Jules is crying and screaming trying to open the door
