Burlington County has not been immune to the ongoing opioid epidemic that has been taking hold of people of all ages across the region, state, and country. According to the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office in the year of 2016, at least 83 people died from illicit drug overdoses. 2017 was even deadlier, in the first 6 months, 82 people lost their lives to overdose in the county. Authorities state that they have been seeing a more lethal batch of drugs hit the streets– primarily heroin laced with fentanyl, which is 50 times more potent than heroin alone.
