Police in Southbridge issued a warning over the weekend about a strong batch of heroin in the area that caused six overdoses in less than eight hours.
The department issued the warning on Facebook Friday and stated the people who overdosed were revived after police and fire personnel used Narcan.
"These six overdoses would have likely been fatal without the prompt response of the police and fire department," said the department in the post, which has been shared by Warren police as well.
Police asked people to call 911 and ask for help if they suspect someone overdosed while using heroin.
The department reminded people that officers will help anyone in need of addiction services. The C.A.R.E. Program will help people in need of services through the help of Harrington Hospital.
Anyone in need of help can go into the station and ask to be enrolled in a program.
