Fentanyl is a synthetic narcotic that is 50-100 times more toxic than other opioids, and is typically prescribed to control severe pain. Over the past three years, there has been a progressive, province-wide increase in the number of illicit drug overdose deaths in which fentanyl was detected. Heroin, cocaine, oxycodone, and other drugs can be cut with fentanyl, in powder, liquid, or pill form.


Naloxone is a medication that reverses the effects of an overdose from opioids. An easy to use Take Home Naloxone (THN) Program was developed to help save lives. The Ministry of Children and Family Development Greater Victoria Youth Services; Naloxone Information Sheet for Youth and Youth Adults states: "It is recommended that parents or caregivers of persons using recreational drugs or prescribed opioids have access to a Naloxone kit." (MCFD Greater Victoria Youth Services, Naloxone Information Sheet for Youth and Youth Adults, November 2016).
