Free Naloxone and Test Strips
The ubiquity of harmful additives like fentanyl and xylazine has much to do with the rise in overdose deaths linked with the unregulated drug supply. Additives have been found in cocaine, heroin, MDMA/ecstasy/Molly, and pressed into pills and are undetectable by sight smell or taste. This increases the risk of overdose for people who use any substance - including people using for the first time. In an effort to save lives and decrease the harms associated with substance use, we've partnered with the MATTERS Network to provide free drug test kits and have processed over 100,000 orders. Now more than ever, harm reduction is an imperative. Harm reduction strategies include: increased naloxone access and training; syringe services programs; access to drug test strips; overdose prevention education; removal of stigma and barriers to treatment and to medications for treatment; Deterra medication disposal bags; anti-stigma work; increased public awareness and education; and grassroots work by peers, recovery supports, and prevention coalitions.
Reduce risk and harm:
- Test your supply by using test strips
- Avoid using alone, and if you do, call the Never Use Alone Hotline at (800) 484-3731 to have an operator stand by while you use.
- Have an overdose plan
