Facts about Fentanyl: Community Training for Tennesseans
July 26 @ 12:30 pm
Fentanyl is a man-made opioid that’s many times stronger than morphine or heroin. Because it is so strong and so addictive, it’s being added to heroin, fake prescription pills, even stimulants like cocaine and methamphetamine. The result is huge increases in overdoses, and sadly, more Tennesseans than ever dying. These deaths are preventable with knowledge and tools.
