Local County Encourages Citizens to Carry Narcan as a way to Show Love and Support

Link to the original article. I wrote a couple paragraphs then copied and pasted the news article.

I can’t share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in public places, but I’m encouraged to always carry Narcan with me? This world is way off kelter!

Ross County (Chillicothe) and Pickaway County (Circleville) are next to each other. It’s just a twenty-minute drive to downtown Chillicothe (biggest city in Ross County), but here in Circleville overdoses are extremely high too.

I remember a few years ago when they started urging citizens to carry Narcan in case they needed to help an overdose victim. Now, they are saying the illegal drugs are so powerful that it requires more than one dose to revive someone who in overdosing. “These doses are so high that overdose reversals require more than one dose of naloxone.” This present world system piles sin upon sin by discarding the need for Jesus Christ, trampling on the Holy Spirit, and not believing in God. “for her sins are piled up to heaven, and God has remembered her crimes.” Revelation 18:5

In this following quote, it sounds like they are trying to make themselves sound righteous with words like, “to help save our neighbors and loved ones.” While they say those words, they blaspheme God, secularize the churches, and make war with God’s people, “It opened its mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander His name and His dwelling place and those who live in heaven. It was given power to wage war against God’s Holy people” Revelation 13: 6-7 They are governing by the mark of the beast. This is the quote in the article, “Our objective is to ensure that any resident, first responder, or officer can directly access naloxone to help save our neighbors and loved ones from an unintentional opioid overdose.” Government leaders are not the Christ, Salvation only comes through Jesus Christ. We are God’s loved ones, and He sets an example of true love, “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

A quote from the article says that they give support to “providers who make recovery in all its forms possible.” But they have not made the recovery form of coming to Jesus Christ an option, in fact “they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God.” They have thrown the Truth to the ground. I can hear the wolf speaking through the sheep’s clothing when the quote in the article says, “It also supports the nation’s strong recovery community.” I don’t see any recovery around the area where I live, and overdoses aren’t getting any better around the nation. The authorities who govern our cities are a mirror image of the Bible’s description of those who live by the mark of the beast. These are the same people who push for same sex marriages and other unGodly transformations.

“Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God,
so, God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 
They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity.
They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice.
They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful;
they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 
they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 
Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, 
they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”
Romans 1:28-32

Ross Co. Health District commissioner encourages the community to carry Narcan
CHILLICOTHE, Ohio – In observance of National Recovery Month, Ross County Health Commissioner Garrett Guillozet encourages the community to carry naloxone in case of an opioid overdose emergency.  

Fentanyl’s presence in illicit drugs has spiked unintentional overdose rates statewide. Illicit drugs are often created to mimic commercial medications and often contain a potentially lethal dose of fentanyl or another synthetic opioid. Toxicology data from 2019 to 2020 indicates that Ross County had an 84% increase in fentanyl-related deaths. “We are seeing an increase in the quantity and types of drugs laced with fentanyl and other highly potent synthetic opioids,” said Guillozet. “These doses are so high that overdose reversals require more than one dose of naloxone. This is one reason Ross County Health District (RCHD) is adding the easy-to-use intramuscular naloxone product, ZIMHI, to our distribution system.” 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 100,000 people died of drug overdoses in 2021. Two-thirds of those deaths involved fentanyl or other synthetic opioids. “No community in Ross County is immune to addiction,” said Guillozet. “By adding ZIMHI to our available naloxone supply, RCHD is working to ensure everyone can have access to multiple types of effective and fast-acting overdose reversal medications.” Guillozet continued, “Our objective is to ensure that any resident, first responder, or officer can directly access naloxone to help save our neighbors and loved ones from an unintentional opioid overdose. Seconds matter when responding to overdose emergencies and we know that every overdose reversal is an opportunity for that individual to seek a path to recovery.” 

RCHD provides free Project DAWN kits. To obtain a free kit, residents can submit a request for training at www.RossCountyHealth.org. Since 1989, National Recovery Month has been observed every September to promote new evidence-based treatment and recovery practices. It also supports the nation’s strong recovery community and honors the dedicated service providers who make recovery in all its forms possible.
