 5/19/17 - BRIEF: 5 overdoses reported at West Side mental health facility [Chicago Tribune]

May 18Five residents of a West Side mental health facility were taken to hospitals for overdose symptoms late Wednesday, authorities said.

The patients were transported from Columbus Manor Residential Care Home in the 5100 block of West Jackson Boulevard just before 10 p.m., according to the Chicago Fire Department.

The patients were all later released, fire officials said. It was unclear what substance prompted the reaction.

According to its website, Columbus Manor provides immediate care for psychiatric patients who live on site in the South Austin neighborhood. It follows an open-door policy.

Staff members declined to comment Wednesday night.

Administrators could not be reached for comment Thursday morning.
