San Juan County Sheriff’s Office encourages seniors to learn about fentanyl

Submitted by the San Juan County Sheriff’s Office

The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office is encouraging senior citizens and aging adults to proactively learn about Fentanyl, the threat it poses, and how to have conversations with adult children and grandchildren. Fentanyl has become a growing concern in society, and it’s crucial that the older generations understand its risks and know how to discuss it openly with their loved ones.

The Sheriff’s Office uses information from organizations dedicated to seniors’ well-being, such as – Excellent Care, Decency, & Optimal Living. Their ‘Senior’s Guide to Fentanyl’ offers clear explanations, practical advice, and thoughtful insights on this sensitive subject.
