Health Unit Teaming up with Local Partners for more Fentanyl Talks
The Renfrew County and District Health Unit is continuing to make the rounds next month in raising awareness around the use of illicit fentanyl.
Talks were hosted in the Madawaska and Bonnechere Valley last month and will now be making stops in Deep River, Arnprior and Pembroke.
The health unit says sometimes fentanyl can be found in other street drugs like cocaine, heroin and even marijuana.
Talks will be help by a panel of health professionals and community partners talking naloxone use, education at home, treatment and services for opioid addiction.
The opioid is deadly, even in small amounts and is known to be in use in rural eastern Ontario.
The health unit is teaming up with the OPP, county paramedics and the province’s addiction treatment centre.
