Providence graduate informs Steinbach audience about dangers of fentanyl
2017-02-21
 
Daniel Dacombe led an information session about the dangers of fentanyl last week in Steinbach. The Providence alumnus, who graduated from Providence with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Science in 2003, also counselled those in attendance about how to talk to their kids about drugs and alcohol.
 
“For the average person a deadly dose of fentanyl is about two milligrams, or two grains of salt,” he said, according to Steinbach Online. “Ironically, very few people are actually taking it on purpose. Most of the people who are taking it are taking it without knowing that it’s there.”
 
Dacombe pointed out some signs to recognize that may indicate a person has overdosed on fentanyl and acknowledged the provincial government was working to bolster its statistical information about the opioid.
