Did you know that the common street drug, fentanyl, is so dangerous that a tiny sprinkle of it, 2 milligrams about the size of 6 grains of salt, can kill you so quickly that first responders frequently find dead victims with needles still stuck in their arms. Even more lethal is the related and the even more dangerous carfentanyl which requires only 0.02 milligrams, a hardly visible amount, to be deadly. Fentanyl and carfentanyl are often added to other street drugs without users knowing this.
To learn about the dangers of street drugs, see these websites.


Prof. Philip Barnett, the curator of this LibGuide, has not evaluated and does not endorse any individual treatment centers that may appear in some of these sites.
