WHAT IS NATIONAL FENTANYL AWARENESS DAY?

Now in its third year, National Fentanyl Awareness Day brings together individuals, parents, teachers, corporations, influencers, community groups, and government entities to help put an end to this emergency.

 Last year, over 70,000 Americans fatally overdosed on illegally made fentanyl. Fentanyl is now found in fake pills and many street drugs, but users are often unaware that their drugs contain the potent opioid. This is an urgent public health crisis that puts all of us, and our loved ones, at risk. We all must play a role in preventing further tragedies. 

The MPNN CSB Prevention, Health & Wellness in partnership with Alliance-Wellbeing for Virginia Communities are participants of the National Fentanyl Awareness Day scheduled on May 7th. Please share the below video and spread the word “One Pill Can Kill.”
