The Lake County Health Department has reported an increase in opioid overdoses. The Department is combating the opioid crisis in a multitude of ways, including the distribution of free Naloxone to community members and law enforcement personnel. Naloxone is a non-addictive, life-saving medication. It can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose when used in time. It is easy to get and easy to use. Lake County residents, especially those whose loved ones may be using opioids, are encouraged to have Naloxone on hand in case of an overdose. If you would like to request a free Naloxone kit (includes 4 doses of Naloxone and five fentanyl test strips), visit www.lakecountyil.gov/naloxone or call (847) 377-8199.
