Fentanyl Addiction and Relationship to Other Opioids

A new drug is sweeping the nation, one that is creating an overdose epidemic. It is often prescribed by doctors and is sold on the street as well. It’s made its way into other drugs; these laced drugs are now the number one cause of overdose in the United States. This new drug is called Fentanyl. Fentanyl is an especially dangerous drug because when compared to other opioids such as heroin, oxycodone, and morphine to Fentanyl, Fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent (1), according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
