The BCCSU Drug Checking Project is a provincial pilot that partners with harm reduction organizations across British Columbia to implement and evaluate community-based drug checking services.  Partner sites in this project use two technologies in combination to check drugs: Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy and immunoassay strips that test for the presence of fentanyl or benzodiazepines.

Results from drug checks conducted at partner sites are regularly posted on this website. These results are summarized monthly and further used for additional summary reports to help inform public health partners and the community.

Drug checking empowers people who use drugs to make informed decisions about the substances they intend to use and helps provide public health with timely information about what is in the drug supply.
