Alberta Health Services Fact Sheet on Fentanyl
Fentanyl is a pain reliever that is more potent than morphine. Illicit Fentanyl may be mixed with, or substituted for, heroin, prescription opiates or other street drugs to strengthen their potency. Substance users are at risk of overdosing when they unknowingly ingest drugs mixed with Fentanyl.
The Government of Alberta knows the importance of informing students and parents of ways to avoid harm caused by the use of illicit drugs, in particular Fentanyl. I am asking for your support by sharing the attached Fentanyl Fact Sheet with junior high and high school students, parents and educators.
Access the Fact Sheet here.
