Fentanyl Awareness

Chaffey College is collaborating with local and state agencies to raise awareness about the deadly effects of Fentanyl – a highly potent synthetic opioid increasingly found in fake prescription pills. Our goal is educate students and the community about the dangers of counterfeit pills through the #OnePillCanKill which aims to provide helpful information and resources.

What is fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a potent synthetic opioid drug intended for pain relief as prescribed by a doctor. It is abused when illicitly produced and sold alone or in combination with other drugs, such as heroin, counterfeit pills and oxycodone.


What is the problem with fentanyl?

There is currently a significant nationwide surge in counterfeit pills containing lethal doses of fentanyl that are mass-produced by criminal drug networks in labs, deceptively marketed as legitimate prescription pills, and are killing unsuspecting Americans at an unprecedented rate.
