Drug checking (drug testing) provides life-saving information about the harmful and even deadly contaminants that drugs may contain, such as fentanyl.
Drug checking services are available at many supervised consumption and overdose prevention services across the province to test a range of substances, including opioids, stimulants, and other psychoactive drugs such as MDMA and benzodiazepines.
Each month, the BC Centre on Substance Use publishes reports summarizing drug checking results. You can use these reports to see types of drugs around B.C. and what drugs are contaminated.
Provides a free, real-time text messaging service for anyone to receive toxic drug alerts or share information about toxic drugs in their community. This service is anonymous. People can get other information by text message, like where to find naloxone or how to get drugs tested.
