Got Naloxone

Will County Office of Substance Use Initiatives distributing free naloxone throughout the county.

A Rapid Response Naloxone Program Team, through the Will County Office of Substance Use Initiatives in the County Executive Office and funded by the Illinois Department of Human Services, distributes naloxone to active users in high risks areas of the county.

In just two months, over 800 people were trained and each received two doses of Narcan, the powerful antidote that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose.

In 2019, 118 people died from an opioid overdose. Through July of this year, 54 people have died. The majority of these overdose deaths have occurred in the 25 to 44 age group.

U.S. Congressman Bill Foster (D-11) and Will County Executive Denise Winfrey fully support the efforts to end overdose deaths.
