Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. You cannot see, smell, or taste Fentanyl and you will not know it is a lethal dose until it is too late. Knowing the signs of an overdose and how to use naloxone are crucial to reverse an overdose.  

There three known forms of Fentanyl are: 

  • Liquid form
  • Powder form 
  • Rainbow Fentanyl

In its liquid form, illicitly manufactured Fentanyl can be found in nasal sprays, eye drops, and dropped on to paper or small candies. Fentanyl has been known to be pressed in to pills to resemble authentic prescription pills. It is nearly impossible to determine a fake pill from an authentic one without the use of testing strips. Even testing strips are not 100% accurate, and may not pick up other synthetic opioids like Carfentanil. It is important to only take medication prescribed to you by a licensed medical professional and lock up any opioids prescribed to you to ensure young children can not reach them. 

Signs of an overdose include: 

  • Small, constricted “pinpoint pupils”

  • Falling asleep or losing consciousness

  • Slow, weak, or no breathing

  • Choking or gurgling sounds

  • Limp body

  • Cold and/or clammy skin

  • Discolored skin (especially in lips and nails)

Safe Drug Disposal Sites

A good practice to keep yourself and children safe, is to properly dispose of filled prescriptions if they are expired or not needed. View a list of safe drug disposal sites in Glenn County here

If you are prescribed opioids, lock them up or put them in a hard to access location to prevent children from accidentally consuming them. 



Glenn County Substance Use Disorder Services Memorial Project 

The Gone Too Soon Memorial Project, developed by the Sacramento County Opioid Coalition, displays a series of photos of those lost to opioids. We are humanizing the statistics by offering a look at the faces of community members and showing the great losses we have faced, both together and apart. The posters will be shared here, at in-person events, on social media, and in videos.
