Heroin Still A Problem

An official with the Fond du Lac County Health Department cautions people to not overlook the problem in the community with heroin and opioids because authorities are also worried about methamphetamine issues. Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says that’s something Fond du Lac Police Chief Bill Lamb recently mentioned during a Town Hall meeting about meth. She notes it’s possible for a drug user to have problems with heroin and meth at the same time. Meth has become an issue further up the Fox Valley, but treatment facilities in the Fond du Lac area have been treating people with methamphetamine addictions.
