5 Drug Overdoses in Norwalk in a Week Were Fatal: Police

Police said they have responded to eight overdoses in the last week.

Norwalk police have responded to eight drug overdoses in a week and said five of them were fatal. 

As police investigate eight cases since Aug. 28, they are reminding the public of the dangers of opioid abuse and the importance of calling 911 immediately if someone is overdosing. 

They said signs of an overdose include a decrease in breathing rate, which can lead to death if not quickly addressed. 

“This a true medical emergency and 911 should be your first call,” police said in a news release. 

The Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services website has information on opioid programs, Narcan training and treatment.
