Learn about the dangers of fentanyl
Wallet cards containing fentanyl information. (Spanish version)
Fentanyl is much more powerful than heroin, so these overdoses happen quickly and are harder to reverse. You might need more than one dose of naloxone to reverse a Fentanyl overdose. Every minute counts, call 9-1-1 if you think it’s an overdose.
