Fentanyl Resources

Understanding Medical vs. Street Fentanyl

With rising awareness of the fentanyl crisis, there are increasing questions from patients about what sort of opioids are used in pain medicine and during surgery. There are serious dangers of fentanyl poisoning from fake pills and other illicit drugs – and fentanyl remains the most dangerous drug threat in our country. But it is important for patients to understand how fentanyl is safely used in a medical setting as part of an anesthetic treatment plan, and how it differs from street drugs.

CSA has created this patient handout and a poster for use in a hospital or clinic to help improve understanding of the safety of medical fentanyl.
