(EMAILWIRE.COM, April 24, 2016 ) West Palm Beach, FL -- According to Broward Palm Beach New Times, a new and dangerous synthetic opiate called W-18 has been discovered in South Florida following the arrest of a man convicted of distributing the deadly painkiller, Fentanyl.

West Palm Beach Drug Rehab, a leading provider of Heroin rehab in West Palm Beach, is intimately aware of the dangers posed by heroin, especially when adulterated with unknown substances. The recent influx of heroin-related deaths in West Palm Beach is attributed to heroin diluted by Fentanyl and other substances. The revelation that the dangerous synthetic opiate W-18 may be among them is deeply concerning.
A representative of West Palm Beach Drug Rehab comments:
"In the wake of Flakka's decrease throughout South Florida, heroin use has once again increased, and with it, adulterating substances like Fentanyl, and now, W-18. The inherent danger of these substances is that they are not understood. Their interactions and the way one will react cannot be predicted, leading to tragic and preventable deaths. It is nearly impossible to know if these substances have been added to heroin, thus increasing the danger even further."
