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.
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 (Please note: Drug checking services will not be provided for the month of January 2020 due to unforeseen circumstances) and SafePoint on Thursdays.
Please call to confirm availability.
