Drug Related Harm Reduction Programs

Fentanyl Test Strip Distribution Programs

Programs that distribute test strips which can be used to detect the presence of fentanyl and many of its known analogs in a drug sample with the objective of reducing the number of heroin-related fatalities. Fentanyl testing strips are mostly used by people who inject opioids. Based on the results of the testing strips, people can choose to implement measures to reduce the risk of an opioid overdose including using less of the substance, giving slow or test shots, not using alone, using with a naloxone rescue kit nearby or not using the substances at all. Other unregulated drugs in pill or powder form can also be tested (e.g., cocaine, MDMA, ketamine, and other non-injectable drugs) but must be mixed with water prior to testing.

Needle Exchange/Distribution Programs

Programs that help prevent the transmission of HIV/AIDS and other blood borne infectious diseases by providing new, sterile syringes and other sterile injection supplies to needle users in exchange for used ones; or which sell new hypodermic needles and syringes to high risk individuals who have a prescription or, in jurisdictions where it is permitted, without a prescription.

Opioid Antidote Distribution Programs

Programs that distribute Narcan or other similar substances that block the effects of opiates such as heroin, morphine, codeine, OxyContin, methadone, fentanyl and Vicodin but cannot themselves be used to get a person high. Opiate antidotes can be used to reverse the effects of an opiate overdose including restoring breathing that has stopped or slowed down, and may be distributed to opiate users to reduce the number of deaths that occur from opiate overdose.
