Joining Host Jim Falk to continue the conversation about the Fentanyl crisis are:
Officer Chris Bianez, Plano Police Department, Crime Prevention Unit and
John-Mark Meulman, LPC, LCDC, Program Administrator, Collin County Substance Abuse
One pill can kill is the message that our U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency is sending- very loudly.
Over 150 people die every day from overdose/ poisoning related to synthetic opioids like fentanyl.
Many of them young people.
The numbers are growing, despite the best efforts of school counselors, law enforcement officials, parents and other health professionals.
The battle against the cartels and drug traffickers is far from being won; in fact, they are winning.
Join us this Sunday to learn more about this growing crisis and how you can help educate and inform others about this crisis.
And very special thanks to Officer Chris Bianez for assisting us with this program.
