FentAlert Challenge: Empowering Youth for Safer Choices


Today, SAMHSA issued a challenge to America’s youth: Help us raise awareness about fentanyl and reduce teen overdose deaths.


FentAlert: Empowering Youth for Safer Choices − SAMHSA Fentanyl Awareness Youth Challenge is an opportunity for youth, ages 14-18, to develop a community strategy to educate their peers about fentanyl and fake pills ― and prevent drug overdose deaths.


If you or someone you know uses prescription opioids, please ask any pharmacy staff member about getting a free box of Narcan to keep on hand in case of accidental opioid overdose (while supplies last)!

Three Ways to Avoid COVID-19 Scams

Start with your state or local health departments to find out how, when, and where to get a COVID-19 vaccine in your community. And to avoid a scam, know that:

  • You can't pay to put your name on a list to get the vaccine. That's a scam.
  • You can't pay to get early access to the vaccine. That's a scam.
  • Nobody legit will call, text, or email about the vaccine and ask for your Social Security bank account, or credit card number. That's a scam.
