Concerned about contaminants like fentanyl in your drugs? Want to check?
Fraser Health is offering drug checking at various locations across the region. This is a free and confidential service.
The drug checking utilizes BTNX Fentanyl Test Strips™ that enable individuals to check their drugs for contaminants like fentanyl.
This service is available at Abbotsford Community Hub Centre and SafePoint during all hours of operation.
How does it work?
Individuals are provided with a test strip. They then dilute their substance with a small amount of water and a positive or negative for fentanyl is revealed within minutes.
Drug checking for all chemicals
The Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) machine can identify multiple ingredients, including cutting agents. This service is available at Abbotsford Community Hub Centre on Tuesdays and SafePoint on Thursdays.
