KXAN: fentanyl overdoses dropped in 4 states. These solutions are helping

AUSTIN (KXAN) — It keeps Zach Timber up at night.

It is a constant anxiety of the next person who could walk in and might not be so lucky to survive taking a pressed pill laced with fentanyl.

“Any patient who comes in saying they are taking pills they bought on the street almost never test positive for the substance that they believe they are purchasing, but instead simply pills that contain fentanyl,” Timber said. “Pressed Xanax, pressed Adderall, pressed hydrocodone and it seems that they’re all containing fentanyl.”
