Drug Checking Services Available

December 13, 2018

Drug Checking is available through Vancouver Coastal Health, Interior Health and Fraser Health at no cost.

The drug checking utilizes BTNX Fentanyl Test Strips™ that enable individuals to check their drugs for contaminants like fentanyl.

Vancouver Coastal Heath - VCH offers free, anonymous drug checking services so people can determine what is in their substances, and potentially take action to reduce the risk of any associated harms.
