Fentanyl Resources

Fentanyl and Overdose Information 

  • King County has seen an increase in overdose-associated deaths from pills and powders containing fentanyl.  
  • Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is stronger than other opioids such as heroin and morphine.  
  • Drugs that look like prescription pills can be laced with fentanyl, and users may be exposed to lethal doses without their knowledge. 
  • An overdose is the result of too much opioid in the body and can result in the loss of consciousness and cause someone to stop breathing. 
  • The effects of an opioid related overdose may be temporarily stopped with the medication Naloxone. Learn more about Naloxone on
  • Washington State law has protections those who have overdosed and those responding to overdose. You can read more about these protections at

Fentanyl Warning for Parents and Students

Overdose Response at Highline 

Highline Public Schools recognizes that opioid use is a public health crisis and access to overdose reversal medication may be lifesaving. Our current board policy allows for the use of opioid overdose reversal medication to respond to suspected opioid overdose during the school day. Our high school, and soon our middle school sites, have Naloxone available for nurses and trained school personnel to administer for suspected opioid related overdose.
