Fentanyl: A Deadly Drug

Bernalillo County, the City of Albuquerque, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and community partner organizations are joining forces to launch a community educational awareness campaign dealing with the deadly drug fentanyl.  This extensive fentanyl awareness campaign will immerse the community in valuable information to combat this life-ending and family-shattering drug.   

Fentanyl use, overdose, and poisoning have taken a toll in all regions of our country, from the largest cities to the smallest towns.  Parents and community members who once thought “it could never happen to my family,” are now facing the harsh reality of educating themselves on how to identify the presence, use, and how to seek resources to fight addiction of fentanyl.

The campaign is entitled “keepNMalive” and will begin with a community discussion about fentanyl.  The goal of this free summit is to provide awareness to the cause, supply, consequences of use, and community resources to combat the impact fentanyl is having on the community.  Assistance information will be available to individuals or families affected by fentanyl and the summit will feature more than 40 experts in their respective fields.
