New Fentanyl and Overdose Prevention Communications Toolkit

The United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has issued a warning that there is a new trend of brightly colored fentanyl and fentanyl pills across the country, called “rainbow fentanyl.” Rainbow fentanyl can be found in many forms, including pills, powders, and blocks.

In response to this alert, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) has released a Fentanyl and Overdose Prevention Communications Toolkit, which organizations and individuals can use to share information about the risks of fentanyl and how to prevent overdose. The toolkit includes images and messaging for use on social media to raise awareness about fentanyl in both Spanish and English.
