BERNALILLO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) — With Fentanyl Awareness week starting on Monday, Bernalillo County is aiming to educate the public about the dangers of the deadly, synthetic opioid.
On Sunday, they did a screening of the movie ‘All the World is Sleeping’ that was filmed in New Mexico.
The film showed how humans face addiction, and what the community can do to provide support to those in need facing addiction.
During the week, the county will be offering 20 workshops to educate, equip, and empower the public during the fentanyl crisis. Free classes are available, and you can learn about treatment, overdoses, training, and addiction support.
