Help Stop Fentanyl Deaths
Fentanyl has been called the single deadliest drug threat our nation has ever encountered. It is, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine. The staggering numbers show that in 2021 alone, 107,375 Americans died of drug overdose and poisoning, with 67% of those deaths involving synthetic opioids like fentanyl.
The ripple effect from this crisis is felt across the nation as families, friends and communities continue to shoulder the loss of a loved one — a loss that is almost always accidental, considering how low the lethal dose is.
Despite the research and advocacy for this crisis, the harrowing reality is still not widely understood by the public. You can be part of putting an end to this deadly epidemic.
To better understand the issue and protect your family, learn more about fentanyl awareness and the stories of victims and their loved ones.
