Eugene police responds… overdoses

According to Lane County Public Health and Eugene Police, the community is seeing an increase in street drugs containing fentanyl – a powerful, illicit opioid with high risk for overdose.

“We have seen fentanyl contamination in cheap, counterfeit pills sold as common medications such as oxycodone, Adderall, or Xanax,” the department said. “We also have reports of fentanyl being found in white or colored powdered drugs that might be sold as cocaine, MDMA, or methamphetamine. It should be assumed that any illicit drug could contain fentanyl.”
