Being aware if fentanyl is present in illicit drugs allows people to implement appropriate harm reduction strategies to reduce the risk of an overdose.
Overdose deaths involving fentanyl have quadrupled in recent years. Fentanyl is up to 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. Most overdose cases are linked to illicitly manufactured fentanyl, distributed through illegal drug markets for it’s heroin-like effect. This makes evidence-based harm reduction strategies such as fentanyl test strips, safety planning, and access to safe supply more vital than ever.
An accurate, cost-effective, and accessible method for checking if drugs contain Fentanyl is by using Fentanyl Test Strips. Fentanyl Test Strips can identify the presence of fentanyl in unregulated drugs, such as cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin, etc. They can be used to test
injectable drugs, powders, and pills.
