From the Middletown Police Department
Since the beginning of December, we have seen an increase in heroin overdoses. Two of them have resulted in fatalities. Several other people were revived with NARCAN. Fentanyl is a very potent opiate that is sometimes mixed with heroin. We are seeing fentanyl use in Middletown.
If you have friends or family with an opioid addiction, make them aware of this increase. If you’re looking for more information call 211 or on the web 211.org. Check on your family and friends, the holidays can bring joy and happiness, but for many people it can bring on stress and sadness.
