With such a lethal drug being laced in today's heroin, we at Narconon Freedom Center truly are concerned and want to help as many addicts as possible recover from addiction.

Narconon Freedom Center is urgently warning anyone that is struggling with heroin addiction or knows someone struggling to seek help immediately. A large amount of the current heroin being sold across the United States is being laced with fentanyl making it 100 times more potent and lethal.

Heroin can be found as black tar or off-white powder, but when laced with fentanyl the drug looks exactly the same, which means you do not know if you are potentially getting a lethal dose of heroin laced with fentanyl or not.

There have been cities reporting twenty-four or more overdose deaths in a single day, along with Chicago reporting seventy-four overdoses in seventy-two hours back in October. This steep increase in overdose deaths is due to the lethal combination of the drugs and is tearing entire communities apart.

The current outbreak has put law enforcement and government agencies on high alert, as they witness an alarming increase in fentanyl related deaths across the country. Even more alarming is that it is not just first time users being effected, but everyone that uses the laced heroin is potentially at risk of an overdose or death.

With the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reporting an extraordinarily high increase of heroin overdoses over the past few years, the epidemic is only spreading into more homes each and every day. The total number of deaths from heroin skyrocketed to over 10,000 individuals in 2014 and continues to soar.

Narconon Freedom Center is issuing this warning to not only warn individuals across the nation about the potentially lethal heroin, but to aid in ending the stigma of addiction. Together we can conquer addiction and educate our communities to assist in bringing light to addiction and rehabilitation.

To help a love one struggling with heroin, call one of our addiction specialists today at 877-639-2909.
