dr Beth Weinstock is the founder of BirdieLight, a group focused on educating parents and students about the dangers of fentanyl.
dr Beth Weinstock is the newest guest on the Real Talk Podcast, hosted by Susan Stone and Kristina Supler. dr Weinstock is a doctor by profession and has a passion for poetry. She is a mother of four who lost one of her sons to accidental ingestion of fentanyl in 2021. This led to her co-founding BirdieLight with her daughter to educate students and their parents about the dangers of fentanyl. The podcast explores how drug use can go beyond purely recreational use at parties, the stigma associated with high school drug use, and how understanding it can save lives.
according to dr For Weinstock, it’s crucial to talk about fentanyl in a way that helps break down the stigma surrounding it. For comparison, at the peak of the AIDS epidemic, for example, 50,000 people lost their lives, but in the past year alone, ie in 12 months, hundreds if not thousands of people died from opioids, three quarters of which were caused by fentanyl. Although the stigma attached to drug use can never be completely eliminated, parents need to be open about it when discussing it with their children.
An article in Medical Xpress dated February 14, 2022 noted that users may not always be aware that the medications they are taking may contain fentanyl. However, the opioid is 100 times more potent than morphine and about 50 times more potent than heroin. This is one of the reasons why so many young people lose their lives to it.
