Dr. John P. Rosa, opioid crisis expert, author and dynamic speaker, talks about unscrupulous drug dealers lacing homemade pills with deadly heroin and even more deadly Fentanyl. He urges parents to talk openly about the dangers and to educate children to resist the temptation to experiment even once.
ROCKVILLE, MD. August 29, 2019: Dr. John Rosa, dynamic speaker, national opioid crisis expert, and co-author of The Recipe for Success with Jack Canfield, posted a new article on his website entitled, “Temptation Can Kill With Just One Pill,” in which Dr. Rosa talks about the importance of talking openly about the dangers of taking even a single pill.
As Dr. Rosa states, “Our children are faced with more deadly challenges than ever before in history.” He continues adding, “Going to school is no longer the place where kids come face-to-face with old-time bullies and cliques. Today’s children worry about being gunned down. And, in order to be considered “cool” they are peer-pressured to take pills they know nothing about.” He emphasizes, “And these days, one pill can kill.”
“The stress that our children live under is unbearable,” says Dr. Rosa. He goes on to say that, “So, when they are convinced to try a counterfeit pill for fun or stress it’s difficult to resist.” Unfortunately, according to Dr. Rosa, “So many kids who take a single pill just one time end up dead.”
According to Dr. Rosa, “The problem is that for someone convinced to try an opioid laced pill for the first time – someone who has never been exposed to opioids – the body cannot tolerate even one grain of Fentanyl. One pill is a guaranteed death sentence.” He adds, “A few years ago there was a college in Colorado that lost 8 students to opioid overdose in one semester.”
Dr. Rosa writes, “Anyone can order a pill press machine online and have it delivered right to their door. This kind of easy access,” he says, “is contributing to the wider distribution of deadlier opioid pills. Among the most popular fake pills being pressed today are Percocet and Xanax, both of which are being made with the addition of heroin and/or Fentanyl.” Dr. Rosa states, “Fentanyl has surpassed heroin as the deadliest drug. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid with between 50 to 100 times the potency of heroin and morphine. A dose of less than two milligrams of fentanyl, about the size of a grain of sand, can be fatal.”
