Deadly Opioid Carfentanil Found in Oneida County

Carfentanil, a synthetic opioid that is 10,000 times more powerful than morphine and 100 times more powerful than fentanyl, has been identified in three individuals who use drugs in Oneida County.

ACR Health can provide fentanyl test strips in its nine-county service area so drug users can check whether drugs may be more potent than they realize to reduce the risk of overdose. Carfentanil will show up on these strips. We also provide naloxone (Narcan) kits as well as fentanyl test strips.
