Workforce Solutions is committed to ensuring the health and vitality of all Texans. We strengthen the Texas economy by assisting employers and jobseekers, and the fentanyl crisis impacts us all. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and is a major contributor to fatal and nonfatal overdose. Even small amounts can be deadly. One in five Texans has experienced an opioid overdose or knows someone who has. According to a National Safety Council survey, 75% of employers report that opioid use has impacted their workplace.
