SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The Drug Enforcement Administration calls the powerful synthetic opioid “the single deadliest drug threat our nation has ever encountered.”

Six out of 10 pills on the drug market now contain it, and everyone needs to be aware of how quickly it can kill.

WSAV invites you to watch this special report: “What your family should know about opioids.”

The report features wide-ranging conversations about several facets of the opioid crisis, from the agents who are trying to crack down on it to the parents whose children have been poisoned.

“In [the DEA] headquarters, as soon as you walk in, they have the faces of fentanyl. And they have over 5,000 people on that wall,” said Kristy Dyroff, whose son died from fentanyl poisoning. “The oldest is 70 years old, the youngest is 1 year and 1/2.”
