In this Fentanyl Awareness Campaign, Greene County Public Health gets the word out that test strips are available for FREE. This brand treatment conveys to “Stop and Check for Fentanyl”.
Lives depend on our target audience taking the next step to get the test strips. The overdosing rate from drugs laced with fentanyl in Greene County has been increasing dramatically.
The reason? It’s hard to tell the difference between drugs laced with fentanyl and those that aren’t. And even if you use the test strips… unlike other testing strips, a double line means there isn’t fentanyl detected.
Video Creative for Cable and OTT Placements
To reach the largest number of viewers, we opted to place this video on both Cable and OTT. We had a quick creative turnaround time. But our team was up to the challenge, creating this effective video ad with clear messaging.
A Broad Outreach Effort
We needed to reach the largest number of people as possible quickly. To do so, we also placed ads on billboards and social. We also created Palm Cards for first responders to hand out, and stickers to place in public restrooms.
How to Use Fentanyl Test Strips Card
The next problem we had to solve was, several people had the test strips. But, they still overdosed because it was hard to read the results correctly. As mentioned previously, a double line means there isn’t fentanyl. If you have taken other strip-based tests – a single line means what your testing for isn’t detected. (For example, a single line means you aren’t pregnant.)
To make matters worse, we found the test strips came with a full page of instructions. Let’s be real, when is the last time you read a full page of instructions for anything? Never, right? In order to solve this, we created a “How-to Card”, shown below. On the front, the card quickly explains how to read the results. On the back, it gives more detailed instructions.
Finally, while learning how to use the test strips we discovered sterile water is needed to get proper results. So, we found small sterile water vials to include in the kit to make it even easier to use.
