High School Assembly Program: Empowering Youth, Saving Lives
At Fentanyl Fathers, we are committed to equipping our youth with the knowledge and tools needed to combat the deadly threat of fentanyl. Our high school intervention program offers a direct and impactful approach to education, providing students with real data, up-to-date information, and direct communication with bereaved parents who have experienced the devastating effects of this counterfeit killer.
Presentation Overview: Awareness, Prevention, Overdose Recognition & Response
Our comprehensive presentation covers essential topics crucial in protecting young lives. From increasing awareness about the dangers of fentanyl to practical prevention strategies, recognizing overdose signs, and knowing how to respond in emergencies – we leave no stone unturned in empowering students with life-saving knowledge.
How Fentanyl Fathers Executes the Program
Our high school intervention program is facilitated by two trained Fentanyl Fathers who deeply understand the urgency of this crisis. Utilizing a compelling PowerPoint presentation, we incorporate a powerful award-winning documentary titled "DEAD ON ARRIVAL." This documentary showcases real-life case studies of families affected by fentanyl poisoning, leaving a profound impact on the student audience.
Comprehensive Content and Support Services
During the presentation, we conduct pre and post-test surveys to gauge the effectiveness of our program at each assembly. We foster open discussions on responding to overdoses, handling peer pressure, emphasizing the benefits of avoiding drug experimentation, and highlighting the grave threats posed by fentanyl.
In line with our commitment to safeguarding young lives, we collaborate with community partners to offer follow-up services that include connecting students with mental health resources and substance abuse rehabilitation services in their areas. Moreover, we ensure free Naloxone delivery to schools and provide on-stage training so this life-saving medication can be used to promptly prevent fatal overdoses.
Continuous Improvement and Evaluation
At Fentanyl Fathers, we value the importance of data-driven insights. To enhance our program and assess its effectiveness, we diligently track pre and post-test data, naloxone distribution, and overdose incidence/mortality rates. This approach enables us to refine our efforts continually and ensure we are making a tangible difference in the lives of our youth.
Together, let's stand against the fentanyl crisis and build a safer, more informed future for the next generation. Your support matters, and together, we can save lives.

"There are just a ton of different drugs that are out there, and all the little things that they mix into them is just insane to me. I didn't realize how prevalent this stuff is, and even in our community!"

"This was a very powerful message, and the kids were very in tune with it. You know when you looked around you saw some kids crying, wiping tears off their face, so we think the message hit pretty hard to them. It was very good."

"I thought it was very moving. Me personally, I've dealt with family members who struggle with addiction and overdose, so I thought it was just very moving, and a very good lesson for our generation - help out a lot of kids."
"I think what really got to me was just seeing like, how much of it, like on a pencil tip, could just kill you that easily...like you never know, you wouldn't even be able to see it and it will just kill you."
