Saving lives

LAKEWOOD, CO, February 02, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Misfit Addiction Counseling Offers Free Fentanyl Test Strips to Combat Opioid Overdose Epidemic

Misfit Addiction Counseling, a leading provider of addiction treatment services in Colorado, has free fentanyl test strips to the public. These test strips, which can be used to detect the presence of fentanyl in illicit drugs, are available to the community as part of the organization’s ongoing efforts to combat the opioid overdose epidemic.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine and has been responsible for a significant number of overdose deaths in recent years. By providing free fentanyl test strips to the public, Misfit Addiction Counseling hopes to empower individuals to make informed decisions about their drug use and to reduce the risk of overdose.

Recognizing the destructive effects that opioid addiction, particularly fentanyl, has on families and communities; Misfit Addiction Counseling aims to remove any obstacles that may prevent someone from seeking help and make it as easy as possible for individuals to access their services.

In addition to low barrier access, the organization also offers teletherapy services, allowing individuals to receive treatment remotely via video conferencing. This increases flexibility and convenience for clients and makes their services accessible to people who may have previously been unable to receive treatment due to geographical or mobility constraints.

The test strips can be picked up at the Misfit Addiction Counseling office and can also be ordered online.

“Providing free fentanyl test strips is a simple, yet effective way to help individuals make safer choices about their drug use,” said Josh Mason of Misfit Addiction Counseling. “We believe that this small action will have a big impact in reducing the number of overdose deaths in our community and saving families from the destruction of opioid addiction.”

Misfit Addiction Counseling is committed to doing everything it can to save lives and combat the opioid overdose epidemic. This initiative is just one of the many ways in which the organization is working to save lives and support those in need.
