COMBINED LOCKS — The Kaukauna Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs Abuse Prevention Board is sponsoring a public program to help the community become more aware of the dangers of fentanyl.
This event is will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., Thursday, March 16, 2023 at Christ the King Lutheran Church, 601 S. Washington St., Combined Locks.
The program will discuss:
- Why people of all ages are overdosing because of fentanyl
- How to talk to younger people about fentanyl and how to stay safe.
- How to reverse an overdose
According to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, fentanyl is being mixed in with other illicit drugs to increase the potency of the drug, sold as powders and nasal sprays, and increasingly pressed into pills made to look like legitimate prescription opioids.
Because there is no official oversight or quality control, these counterfeit pills often contain lethal doses of fentanyl, with none of the promised drug.
