In the realm of opioids, it does not get much more potent or dangerous than fentanyl. This medication is a synthetic opioid reserved for the most extreme types of pain, such as cancer patients, post-surgical recovery and those undergoing lethal injection. It is similar to morphine in composition, but is approximately 50 to 100 times more powerful, and is now among the leading causes of overdose deaths in the United States.
Fentanyl and other synthetic opioids are quickly becoming the dominant substance abuse threat facing the country. Overdose deaths involving the drug are up exponentially in most American states and accounted for 68% of the overall reported opioid deaths in the country, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If you or someone you care about has fallen victim to fentanyl addiction, it is crucial that you seek help immediately.
