Today is National Fentanyl Prevention and Awareness Day


Fentanyl Prevention and Awareness

DEA seized more than 58.3 million fentanyl-laced fake pills in 2022. The DEA Laboratory has found that of the fake pills analyzed, six out of ten now contain a potentially lethal dose of fentanyl. 

To spread the word of prevention and awareness, we have launched two initiatives to shine a light on this deadly epidemic. One Pill Can Kill is our campaign to provide informational resources to students, parents, and educators on the dangers of fake pills. Our Faces of Fentanyl exhibit commemorates those who lost their lives to fentanyl poisoning. 

We invite you to participate in National Fentanyl Prevention and Awareness Day. Help us save lives by educating yourself and talking to others about the dangers of fentanyl.
