About Fentanyl:

Because it is cheap to make, illicitly manufactured fentanyl is commonly mixed with drugs like heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine. It can also be shaped into pills that resemble other prescription opioids.

Fentanyl-laced drugs are dangerous. Many may be unaware that the recreational drugs they take are laced with fentanyl.

According to the CDC, 107,375 people in the United States died of drug overdoses and drug poisonings in the 12-month period ending in January 2022. A staggering 67 percent of those deaths involved synthetic opioids like fentanyl.

Naloxone (like NARCAN® Nasal Spray) is a medicine that rapidly reverses an opioid overdose. Fentanyl test strips can also save lives.

We’ll discuss. Register now. It’s free.
