"Heroin remains a strong concern for area Law Enforcement. Heroin has been found to be combined with fentanyl in many tested samples. This has led to a significant increase in heroin-related overdoses. Haverhill Police have responded to 64 suspected heroin overdoses in the last 3 months. In most cases the users suffering from the overdose are treated and revived by first responders. Unfortunately, not everyone recovers and some users have died," police said in a statement.
