The following is a statement featured on Adventist Health Clearlake’s Facebook page:
Our emergency department at Adventist Health has seen multiple overdose cases recently, including 4 in the last day. The sources of these overdoses are coming in the form of non-prescribed opiates or compromised forms of heroin/fentanyl, ecstacy, and cocaine.
If you, or someone you know, may be at risk of an overdose we can help. Our Substance Use Navigator can connect you with services and offer training/distribution of Narcan. Narcan is used for the emergency treatment of a known or suspected opioid overdose. The timely administration of Narcan can save lives. Contact Tina at 707-349-4340 for more information, or to arrange training and distribution of a Narcan kit.
The Lake County Sheriff’s Office is advising the public to not take any medication/pills that have not been prescribed to them by a physician or provided to them by a pharmacist. If you, or someone you know is in possession of these pills or illicit substances, please discard them immediately or turn them over to the authorities. #AddictionTreatmentStartsHere#HelpIsAvailable
