New Survey Finds Knowledge Gap Between California Youth and Parents on the Dangers of Illicit Fentan

The survey, commissioned by Song for Charlie and funded by the California Department of Health Care Services, shows four-in-10 Californian young adults, and half their teen counterparts, aren’t knowledgeable about the misuse of prescription pills.

The survey also shows a wide disconnect between parents and their children which is one of the important issues addressed in a new partnership between Song for Charlie and the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS).

After reading the survey results, we're brainstorming on ways we may increase awareness of this silent killer ahead of a negative impact in our community of Berlin.

There is much we can learn from the New Drug Talk: Connect to Protect, the educational web platform designed to equip California families to educate themselves about the widespread availability of fentanyl-laced pharmaceutical pills (“fentapills”). We believe there is much we can learn from this community effort.

By expanding our capacity and understanding of the dangers of self-medication, and experimentation, we can learn how to have meaningful, high-impact conversations about the rapidly changing drug landscape with our children. Take a look at the full survey press release and join us in learning more about the dangers of Fentanyl.
