Earlier in September the Oneida County Overdose Response Team alerted the public of a Tainted Drug warning.
Residents showed concern following two deaths as a result of a tainted batch of cocaine. The deaths were within 24 hours of each other.
Oneida County Opioid Task Force project coordinator, Lisa Worden, worries that there are opioids mixed with the cocaine.
A text messaging program called Spike Alert is also available and can notify people of an increase in overdoses in their area.
Anyone in need of help for a substance abuse disorder can dial 2-1-1 or contact ACR Health at 315-793-0661.
