Streator police and fire departments warn of surge in overdoses

Streator’s police and fire departments say there’s been a surge in the number of drug overdoses lately. They’re asking everyone to check on their friends and relatives who have opioid addiction. Many people take opioid as prescribed pain relievers. Others take them as recreational drugs to mellow out. An overdose may look like the person is sleeping but he or she can’t be roused.
