Raise Awareness Against Fentanyl

Get involved! Help fight against this killer.

Beware of this very powerful synthetic opioid that is almost similar to morphine but it is more then 50 to 100 times more potent. Synthetic opioids like fentanyl, are now the most common drug that is being involved in drug overdose deaths in the United States. Fentanyl is normally used to treat patients with severe pain and sometimes used to help patients with chronic pain who are tolerant to other opioids.

Fentanyl is also known by other names such as Actiq®, Duragesic®, and Sublimaze®. In the street, the names they use for illegal use of fentanyl include Apache, China Girl, China White, Dance Fever, Friend, Goodfellas, Jackpot, Murder 8, and Tango & Cash.

Fentanyl

Fentanyl, I truly despise you, you came into my home like a thief in the night. You destroyed my world, stole my joy and dimmed my light.
Fentanyl, the hatred that I have for you is carried deep in my soul and because of you, my youngest son didn’t get to live to grow old.
Fentanyl, how dare you take and disrupt so many lives!  You take away from families, their moms, dads, sons, daughters, husbands and wives.
Fentanyl, it’s because of you my sunny days are always gray and regardless of how hard I try, the pain that you’ve caused never goes away.
Fentanyl, you’re the cause of the countless tears that I have shed. You broke my heart and caused it to bleed, because Fentanyl, you S.O.B., you took my youngest son away from me.
