Drug Checking Test Strip Program
Drug checking is a harm reduction service. Take-home drug checking test strips can provide people with information they can use to reduce their risk of overdose and/or poisoning. For a limited time, as part of a pilot project, the health unit will be distributing fentanyl and xylazine test strips. Clients can ask for test strips and will be given a testing kit free of charge along with education on how to use the strips, how to interpret the results, and steps to take to stay safe. Call us or drop by to learn more.
