Growing overdose problem will be addressed in Streator

Posted by wlpo on August 18, 2015

Drug overdoses are something that many don’t like talking about, but they happen more than you think in the Illinois Valley.

You can help raise awareness at Streator’s 2nd annual Overdose Awareness Memorial Walk this Saturday. The walk goes from 11 until 3 and will begin and end at Streator City Park on Hickory Street. There will be speakers, food, music, vendors and a balloon release.

There have been over 100 overdoses in the last five years in La Salle County. Nineteen percent of those happened in Streator.
