Signs of an Overdose-International Overdose Awareness Day-August 31(2).jpg

What to do in the case of an opioid overdose:

  1. Call 911 Immediately
  2. Administer naloxone if available (wait 2-3 minutes before administering a second dose if the first one does not work)
  3. Start rescue breathing and/or chest compressions
  4. Stay until first responders arrive 

Kane County Health Department partners with police departments, substance use treatment centers, schools, and churches throughout the county to provide them with naloxone, a medication used to reverse an overdose caused by opioids.​​​
