Meth, Fentanyl & their Co-Use: A Bay Area Harm Reduction Panel Discussion

August 31   2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

About this event:

The powerful analgesic fentanyl has permeated the drug supply in the San Francisco Bay Area and in other parts of the U.S.–becoming the drug of choice for many due its relative abundance and accessibility. Combined with meth, fentanyl offers a powerful high, but one that comes with risk of overdose and other potentially harms.

During this special online event, held in commemoration of Overdose Awareness Day, we welcome anyone interested in learning more about meth use, fentanyl use, and when they are used together: including physiological effects, contexts in which they’re used together, and personal experiences from community members who use drugs. Panelists will focus on safety and overdose prevention, and effective harm reduction strategies to empower and support people who co-use meth and fentanyl.

RSVP on Eventbrite:

A Zoom link will be emailed to registered attendees prior to the event.
