Heroin use a 'public health crisis'
Deaths in DuPage County on the rise, on track to reach all-time high
DuPage County has seen 15 suspected heroin overdose deaths so far this month, according to county coroner Richard Jorgensen. If confirmed, the number would be a record for the county for a single month.
With 18 confirmed heroin deaths so far this year, DuPage County is on track to surpass last year's record-setting 38 heroin deaths.
"We've been having this problem for a long time, but last month was a marked increase in suspected drug deaths," Jorgensen said. "We're way outside anything we've seen in the past."
