Multi-Media features interviews, videos, and more regarding the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.
Interview with a Drug User
This short video is about an interview with a university drug user, Yohann. He can be represented as the entire youth community who agrees with taking drugs. Like most students who take drugs, he does not take them every single day and is not a drug addict. However, studies show that drug users quadruple their chances of getting sudden cardiac attack and death. Like most youth, Yohann feels that drugs do not harm you as he takes them occasionally and in moderate amounts. However, that is far from the truth.

CDC Fentanyl Infomercial
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. Illicitly manufactured fentanyl is being added to other drugs because of its extreme potency, which makes drugs cheaper, more powerful, more addictive, and more dangerous. Drugs may contain deadly levels of fentanyl, and you wouldn’t be able to see it, taste it, or smell it. However, fentanyl test strips are a simple, inexpensive, and effective way to test drugs for fentanyl and help prevent overdose.
