Rockford Scanner™: Numerous Overdoses In the Area Recently

There have been numerous Over Doses in the area recently.

The most recent is in the 200 block of Northway Park rd in Machesney Park.

Emergency personnel use narcan to revive the subjects. Many of the subjects who are revived then refuse medical treatment and leave the scene without getting any help to do it again.

Sources said users have said “We can Over Dose  and be brought back, so why limit ourselves to what we can do”

Last year an average of 3 people passed away every week in Winnebago County, due to Over Doses.

Coroner Bill Hintz says 159 people died of overdoses, averaging three such deaths per week last year. In 2017, 124 people died of drug overdoses in the county of about 295,000 people, up from 96 overdose deaths in 2016.

Hintz on Tuesday said fentanyl, heroin and cocaine were the three most common drugs found in people who died from a drug overdose. Coroner’s records show fentanyl, an opioid, was found in 102 bodies, heroin in 64 and cocaine in 50.

Hintz estimates about 30 people have died of overdoses in Winnebago County so far this year. He projects if that pace continues the number of fatal overdoses in 2019 might surpass 200.
