There is new evidence of fentanyl being sold in rock form in King County. If you or someone you know is using rock or powdered drugs (especially those who believe you are using crack or powder cocaine), be aware it could be fentanyl or contain fentanyl. Regardless of what substances are used, reduce overdose risk by doing the following:
Test drugs for fentanyl. Order Fentanyl Test Strips here: https://redcap.link/kcfts
Always have naloxone. Get naloxone at most pharmacies or order it anonymously here: www.lacedandlethal.com/how-to-spot-an-overdose
Do not use alone. If you must,
Use a service like neverusealone.com that will alert paramedics if you stop responding to a live chat.
Have someone check on you often, or
Use in a place you are more likely to be found by others
Go slow. Start with a small amount to see how it affects you before you take more. Increase slowly.
Watch and wait. If using with others, don't use at the same time.
Avoid mixing drugs.
If you do, use less & use one at a time.
Know the signs of overdose and how to respond.
Not responding, abnormal breath sounds (snoring, gurgling) or not breathing.
Call 911, administer naloxone, and give rescue breaths.
Have naloxone. Tell your friends you have it, where it is, and how to use it.
