Fentanyl: The Deadliest Opioid

DVD, HRM, 18 minutes, Grades 7-College

This program arms viewers with the most updated information on fentanyl, an opioid drug responsible for thousands of accidental overdose deaths. The program describes how fentanyl is made in dirty, illegal labs and that drug dealers often mix it with heroine to produce a cheaper product. Viewers will learn that fentanyl is 100 times more powerful than heroin and only a miniscule amount, the equivalent to about three grains of salt, is needed to kill an adult. This program also alerts viewers to the sister drug, carfentanil (also called the drug of mass destruction). This drug is 100 times more powerful than heroin and 10,000 times more powerful than morphine. This program speaks directly to young people in a way they will understand while delivering a strong no use message to anyone thinking of experimenting with fentanyl or carfentanil.
