Baltimore Sun article on synthetic opioid rise

At Health Care For the Homeless, addiction counselors are warning clients about the new drug now that it has appeared in Maryland.

"One of our major messages to clients is you don't know what is being cut into the heroin," said Dr. Nilesh Kalyanaraman, the group's chief health officer. "You need to be careful because your chances of overdosing are higher depending on what they put into it."
