Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid pain reliever that is similar to other drugs like morphine and heroin. However, Fentanyl is stronger and potent.

Usually prescribed for those recovering from surgery or cancer treatment to deal with chronic and acute pain.

The drug creates a euphoria and relaxes the person consuming it. It is very dangerous as it can quickly turn to addiction due to the power and potency.

While Fentanyl's physical and psychological effects can lead anyone along the path of addiction, some people may be more at risk of experimenting with the drug in the first place.

The factors that increase this risk can be social, environmental and biological. People are more likely to develop an addiction if they’re vulnerable to multiple risks.
