Course Content
This educational resource aims to educate our children/young adults in the hope that they will make healthier life choices, build capacity, and demonstrate an understanding of the inherent danger that fentanyl is posing in our communities. While adolescence may be a time to develop independence that can include an element of risk-taking and pushing boundaries, our young people need to understand that there is no “personal choice” when using fentanyl. That choice is taken away and left to the drug dealers and manufacturers. Individuals who experiment with drugs have no choice regarding the mix of chemicals they are prepared to ingest.

Course Understanding Fentanyl
About Lesson

This educational documentary clearly outlines the dangers of addiction; fentanyl is particularly addictive and dangerous. The viewer will have a better understanding of the types of drugs that are being used, how addiction affects family members and those responding to the concomitant medical emergencies that often arise from fentanyl use. Drug addiction need not be a death sentence, although for some families it was. There are many treatment modalities in place, but community involvement is needed to help break down barriers to, and the facilitation of, treatment. Addicts need help in their reintegration back into society. There are substantial cost savings related to recovery; the loss of human potential is a price too high to pay during this unprecedented drug crisis.
