Find out what’s in your drugs.

Drug checking is a harm reduction service. It helps community members check their drugs for fentanyl and other contaminants, and take action to reduce overdose risk and other harms.

There are two different ways to check drugs in our region – fentanyl test strips and fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometers.

All drug checking services are free and confidential.

Fentanyl test strips

Fentanyl test strips can detect fentanyl and some fentanyl analogues in a drug sample.

Individuals mix the sample (equal to a few grains of sand) with a small amount of water, place the test strip in the water and a positive or negative result is revealed in minutes.

For more information on drug checking with fentanyl test strips, please see our step-by-step guide:
