Health and Safety Spotlight

Methamphetamine is a man-made stimulant which is relatively inexpensive and easy to produce, making it very accessible for teenagers. One study found that 7% of high school seniors have used the drug at some point in their lifetime. Meth is far more addictive than most other drugs and easily leads to brain, heart, and/or lung damage which can lead to death. In recent years, the overdose deaths related to meth have increased substantially from about 5,526 in 2015 to over 19,000 in 2020. Part of the reason for this is the fact that meth can be laced with other fatal drugs like Fentanyl without the user knowing. Make sure to have open conversations with your kids about the dangers of drugs and surrounding themselves with the right people!

Fentanyl- You have seen it in the news a lot recently, and it is hitting close to home! According to the CDC, Pharmaceutical fentanyl is a synthetic opioid, approved for treating severe pain, typically advanced cancer pain. It is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine.most recent cases of fentanyl-related harm, overdose, and death in the U.S. are linked to illegally made fentanyl.2 It is sold through illegal drug markets for its heroin-like effect. It is often mixed with other drugs like cocaine or pills. Deaths are on the rise and teens and children are more at risk of exposure than ever before. Please talk to your children about not taking any pills from anyone besides you.
