The Mohave Area Partnership Promoting Educated Decisions (MAPPED) coalition would like to share the attached infographic from the Arizona High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) regarding fentanyl. Misinformation and inconsistent recommendations regarding fentanyl have resulted in confusion. The abuse of drugs containing fentanyl is killing Arizonans. Fentanyl overdoses are on the rise in Arizona, from 2018 to 2019 counterfeit pill seizures with fentanyl increased 490%. AZ HIDTA advises we can help combat the opioid public health crisis and save lives. Please see the attached infographic for more details and share with your communities. If you have any questions or comments regarding fentanyl, please contact the Arizona High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area (HIDTA) at email@example.com.
MAPPED wants to invite anyone interested in making a difference in the community to attend its monthly meetings via Zoom usually held the 1st Thursday each month at 9 a.m. MAPPED’s mission as a coalition is to empower the community in healthy decision that impact substance abuse and other destructive behaviors.
