Heroin addiction is continuing to show its face in Columbus! It is being reported that there has been 27 overdoses in 24 hours here in Columbus. These overdoses have happened within short distances of one another.
From NBC4 –
Because of the increase in overdoses, Columbus Public Health is urging residents to consider the following recommendations:
- Secure naloxone. It can save your life or the life of a loved one. Depending on the potency of the drug, you may need to utilize several doses.
- If you choose to use, please do not use alone. Have someone else present.
- When you use with someone else present, take turns so someone is conscious to help out if you OD
- When and if you choose to use, consider testing new heroin for potency first.
