Arguably the most deadly opioid, fentanyl is a narcotic painkiller that is up to 50 times more potent than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. Because of its extreme strength, clinicians reserve this highly addictive drug for only the most severe cases. Outside of the medical setting, fentanyl is often sold illegally in place of other opioids, and the drug was responsible for 9,580 overdose deaths in 2015.
Since a very small dose of fentanyl can be lethal, it’s imperative to seek help immediately if you find yourself or a loved one unable to stop using it. The Recovery Village fentanyl hotline can help — call today before it’s too late.
