(FAF) This chart compares the increase in synthetic opioid (fentanyl) deaths between children less than one up to 14, with the overall population of the United States. The y-axis represents the x-fold increase in deaths from 2015 to 2021.

Families Against Fentanyl (FAF) has released new statistics on synthetic opioid death rates and the results are startling.  Fentanyl fatalities doubled in the U.S. regardless of age from 2019 to 2021. In just two years, they more than tripled among children ages 1 to 4, and increased nearly 4x among infants younger than one year, and children ages 5 to 14.
