There’s a growing problem of overdose deaths across the US and Winnebago County has seen a very similar trend. Drugs are being laced with the dangerous and often lethal fentanyl; drugs like marijuana, Percocet, Adderall, Xanax and many others. These drugs may seem normal but the fake versions of these drugs are often filled with Fentanyl.

In 2022, UW Oshkosh installed Naloxone rescue boxes. These boxes, much like AEDs and Stop the Bleed kits, contain Narcan and other resources that can be used, if needed, to save a life. We believe being prepared and training our University community to use these tools are the best ways to save lives.

Check out the poster to the left on this page for more information about the danger of Fentanyl.
