At Country Road, we talk about #SmashingTheStigma when we talk about fentanyl – because fentanyl use and addiction can (and does) affect anyone, including the people you’d least expect. Educating the public about the danger this drug poses to us all is the first step to keeping our communities safe. From there, we can share resources to help those recovering from fentanyl addiction heal their underlying trauma and find true freedom. In the video above, our Director of Operations Drew LaBoon shares our mission for stopping fentanyl and saving lives. Watch it and share to help spread the word.
If you or a loved one is suffering with fentanyl addiction, reach out. We’re here to help all community members find the road to recovery.
Fentanyl is driving the latest and most deadly wave of the ongoing opioid crisis in the United States, and it’s especially rampant in rural communities like ours.
Cheaper and more readily available than many other drugs, it has become a popular option among opioid users despite the risks. At the same time, is also often laced in non-opioid products like cocaine or marijuana, causing thousands of unintentional overdoses and fentanyl poisoning.
Anyone who consumes any kind of street drug is at risk from fentanyl. The danger is real, but we have the power to stop it.
Take action right now to protect your loved ones and community: Country Road offers free Narcan training and kits to any group. Or, if you or a loved one is using drugs of any kind, contact us for help. Abstinence is the only way to stay truly safe from fentanyl.
