National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week: April 4

Comparing opioids: • Heroin is more powerful than morphine. • Fentanyl is 50 times more potent than heroin and 80-100 times more potent than morphine. • Carfentanil is 10,000 times stronger than morphine. No matter how you look at it, opioids can be dangerous if people use them correctly. If people use them incorrectly or become addicted, the results can be deadly.
