Fentanyl Information: Stay safe no matter what you do.

There’s been a lot of news about people dying from fentanyl overdoses. The drug is being mixed with all kinds of street drugs and only a few grains can be fatal. It’s impossible to detect; you can’t see, smell or taste it.

TRU wants everyone in our community to be safe. Please read our message about the rising number of deaths linked to street drugs and the resources you can go to for help.
