Fentanyl Test Strips
These test strips help detect if there’s fentanyl in different kind of drugs (cocaine, methamphetamine, heroin etc.) and drug forms (pills, powder, and injectables). The strips are all you need to keep on you and use to avoid unknowingly getting exposed to Fentanyl and to prevent accidental overdoses.
These test strips come with access to a reporting system allowing users to anonymously report a substance that has tested positive for fentanyl. This information is then provided to local organizations to help keep communities safe!

How it Works
Fentanyl is a strong and dangerous drug that is sold through illegal drug markets for its heroin-like-effect. It is sometimes mixed with other drugs to increase their effects. People often are unknowingly getting exposed to it when using drugs bought on the illegal market leading to harmful and deadly effects.
Most recent cases of fentanyl-related harm, overdose, and death in the U.S. are linked to illegally made fentanyl. Rates of overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids, which include fentanyl and fentanyl analogs, increased by over 56% from 2019 to 2020. The number of overdose deaths involving synthetic opioids in 2020 was over 18 times the number in 2013, with more than 56,000 people dying from overdoses in 2020.
Fentanyl test strips provide people who use drugs with important information about fentanyl in the illicit drug supply. Knowing if fentanyl is present can help people take precautions to reduce the risk of accidental overdoses. Users can also report positive results anonymously, helping to keep communities safe!
