New Series on Fentanyl Use and Production

With the continued rise of opioid related overdose deaths in the United States and other countries, we have started a new educational series on the dangers of illicit fentanyl use.

Fentanyl is a very potent, synthetic type of morphine. Much of the increase in opioid overdose deaths since 2014 can be directly attributed to expanding illegal fentanyl production.

We hope readers find this education series informative and useful:

1. How Fentanyl Affects the Brain

2. Fentanyl Overdose Facts

3. Illegal Fentanyl Production Overview

Suggestions on how to improve this educational service are welcome.
