Opioid Deaths Up in McHenry County

From the McHenry County Health Department:

Opioid overdoses, deaths ‘higher than normal’ in McHenry County

McHENRY COUNTY  The McHenry County Department of Health is warning McHenry County residents of a significant increase of overdoses and deaths likely caused by opioids.

On March 13, the McHenry County Substance Abuse Coalition (SAC) issued an alert that local law enforcement was reporting overdoses that required high quantities of the life-saving opioid reversal medication naloxone. The alert also reported an increase of probable opioid-related deaths that occurred from March 5 -14.

Since then, fatal and non-fatal overdoses have remained at higher than normal levels in McHenry County.

MCDH is committed to protecting the identity of people, which is why the number of suspected and confirmed fatal and non-fatal overdoses is not being shared.

The suspected deaths have not been confirmed as opioid-related at this time, but most overdose deaths in McHenry County occur because of opioids and are often caused by fentanyl, a potent synthetic opioid, according to the SAC.

Fentanyl is becoming more common in illicit drugs, even laced with other drugs like cocaine or methamphetamine. It is one of the most lethal forms of opioids.

MCDH and its partners want everyone to remain safe and ensure they have the supplies they need. Fentanyl test strips, which can be used detect fentanyl in all type of drugs, can help prevent an overdose while naloxone can help reverse an overdose.

Fentanyl test strips and Narcan are available for free at the following locations:

  • MCDH’s locations in Crystal Lake, 100 N. Virginia Street, and Woodstock, 2200 N. Seminary Ave. No identifying information is needed, and supplies are available Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, please call (815) 334-4500 and ask to speak to someone about Narcan.

  1. Looks like the Sanctuary State crap pushed by Rauner is paying off to depopulate the planet for the NWO. Sorry for all those that lost a loved thanks to Dem policies.

  2. No, wait.. I thought it was Covid and the vaccine that was paying off in depopulating the planet for the NWO.

  3. LOL. Now Monk is a scientist and an engineer. Tell me all you know about weather manipulation. Provide support. My God IL liberals are beyond help mentally.

    When you’re done with that, show me all of the pics from 911 with airplane parts in them.

    You’re the smartest guy in your dope addled mind sport. Keep proving it.

    Time for your next bong sport.

    Oh and it’s time for your 7th jab.

  4. What’s a Matador’s Cloak Twinkie Lil Joey? LOL. Keep proving that high IQ of yours. This ought to be good. Are you too lazy to crawl out of the matrix? I think so.

    What does First Republic Bank that the other Lil Hair Sniffing Joey and Michael Cohen have to do with First Republic Bank? Are you a Stormy Daniels fan?

    I can’t wait for the BIG indictment that’s coming over 130k payment Trump never made.

    Keep dreaming about my Tool big guy. What’s your next play when you get back from Halsted.

    Again sorry to those that have fallen victim to the Opiod epidemic caused by liberals. Stop shooting garbage in your bodies. You’ll regret it in the long haul.

  5. JT, the fat hog riding toolbag. The eater of Cindy’s crotch crickets.

  6. What a highly Einsteinian retort. Man is the Jumbo group behind a velvet rope tonight sport? Keep trying.

  7. Joseph is a freaking moron. I NEVER said anything bad about sugar. This is how ridiculously ignorant these fools are. Stop talking to them, JT! They can’t even project their lies correctly!

  8. LOL Cindy. I brought up sugar but they foam at the mouth and their feeble brains shut down. Lil Joey the Twinkie filled with whipped beef lard wakes up at 6:30 in the morning and starts trolling for responses. It also sounds like he’s familiar with the crabs which tells me he is doing more than lip service on Halsted and in the kitchen of Uprising.

    You have a few years on me Cindy it sounds like. I love the little trolls that think they are smart. I have several liberals I know too and alot of them smoke dope and act just like the fools here. They too can’t make a point without exposing what highbrow individuals they truly are.

    It’s funny how the world works. The ignorant trying to seem smart. I believe there’s a phrase for that – cognitive dissonance. Well and another phrase. Mass Formation Psychosis. It’s apparent on this political blog since they can’t figure out an election in 2020 was stolen.

    Biden got 81m votes and Kari Lake exposing corruption and going to take all cases to the SCOTUS after the lower court screws with the AZ SC ruling ought to be fun to watch. She said it on Charlie Kirk this afternoon on WIND.

    Lil Joey, still obsessed with my Tool and now you bring my Sac/Bag into it. Seek professional mental help sport. Why are liberals not funny? Keep trying. You may get there one day.

  9. For anyone showing up here for the first time, the dialog and exchange on this post would suggest this blog is populated primarily by grade school morons: name calling, fantasies, ass-pulled facts, etc.

    This blog keeps sinking lower and lower.

  10. JT, sometimes you make your own points with blinding brilliance and accuracy.

    “It’s funny how the world works. The ignorant trying to seem smart. I believe there’s a phrase for that – cognitive dissonance.”

    Not even close.

    Cognitive dissonance relates to the psychological discomfort when two or more contradictory modes of thought are jointly present. For example, someone buying a car they really can’t afford.

    They would incur cognitive dissonance after the purchase: happiness with the new car but distress due to the overwhelming payments.

    The second term, dissonance, would’ve been a dead give-away to even a modestly educated person.

    Nonetheless, thank you for at least trying to seem smart.

  11. Oh look one idiot thinker praising another idiot thinker. Priceless sport.
    Are you typing this after a trip to the tavern Al.
    Cindy and JT are 2 of the biggest morons here, you have now joined the group.

  12. LOL. Add Al to the troll farm. So Al you lost 90/10 for giving your pals property tax breaks. Doesn’t that make you just another corrupt IL liberal? Did you have any cognitive dissonance in screwing your constituents?

    Cindy, I guess we’re morons now. Is there a word or phrase for people that have lost all ability to think critically or comprehend the truth? Some admittedly use drugs to keep them numb.

    Hey HoHo boy. Don’t you mean Kari Q? Time for another bong doper.

  13. “Oh look one idiot thinker praising another idiot thinker. Priceless sport.”

    Appears reading comprehension is also a sparse commodity on this blog.
    It’s unclear how correcting someone with sarcasm amounts to praise.

    The latest comments quickly revert to childish name-calling absent any positive discussion value so it appears all is well in today’s MCB Land.

  14. “Nonetheless, thank you for at least trying to seem smart.”

  15. Compliments here a rarity so I interjected one, again laced with sarcasm that was obviously missed.

    There’s so much blatant animosity present on this blog subtlety is useless.

  16. Cindy wrote in a different post: “Martin? Vilas County? What do you know about that place?”

    Bringing my name up here indicates she didn’t like my response.

    I declined to answer.

    The question is ridiculously open-ended.

    Cindy, you have no goddam right to demand I tell you ‘what I know about Vilas County.’

    How much clearer could that be?

  17. Martin! You are the BIGGEST FOOL I have ever run into on this blog. (And that is saying a LOT!) YOU have zero understanding of cordial conversation and you treat my inquiry like a rabid dog! I bet you have LOTS of friends! NOT! BTW I have a very long history in that county and thought we could touch base on some familiarities. GOOFBALL! (I would have dropped it because you are SO IGNORANT but you just had to chime in again with your outlandish accusations!) Goodbye, fruitloop!

  18. Adios, cheerios. To the other objects of Cindy’s wrath, please note that your are lesser fools.

  19. Hyper-sensitivity and thin skin also seem to be endemic traits of frequency visitors to this blog.

    And to think it used to be a trusted journalistic source. Sad.

  20. Twinkie the traffic director with chapped lips and aching ass has pontificate. Great post Twinkie as usual. LOL

    Cindy Al is the best assessor on the planet just insulted Cal for you trying to be a truth teller.
