PSA: The Dangers of Fentanyl

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid approved for treating severe pain, such as advanced cancer pain. However, illicitly manufactured fentanyl is on the streets in Arizona and increasing at an alarming rate. These pills are extremely dangerous. DEA data demonstrates that two out of every five counterfeit pills contain enough fentanyl to kill a person.

This devastating issue is one that impacts a growing number of families, and we ask that each of you take the time to review and share this important information with your teens and young adults. Please tell your children to only take pills prescribed by their doctor or provided by their parents. One pill can kill. Talking with your children about the dangers of fentanyl can truly save a life.
