Opioids are a highly addictive class of drugs found naturally in the opium poppy plant. These drugs act as depressants on the central nervous system to relieve pain, and they lower heart rate, pulse, and breathing of the user.

Fentanyl is a potent synthetic opioid drug approved by the FDA as a pain relief and anesthetic. It is 100X more potent than morphine and 50X more potent than heroin. Side effects include drowsiness, nausea, confusion, unconsciousness, hypoxia, and death. This drug is found in counterfeit pills that mimic pharmaceutical pills such as oxycodone. Fentanyl is the cause of many accidental overdoses and was attributed to death every 15 minutes in 2021. If an overdose is suspected, contact 911 immediately.
