Did you know there are now fentanyl testing strips? (And anyone know how to get their hands on them?)

Anyone know how to access these, seems like they’re a must for anyone with a loved one using substances. A community meeting recently that @erica and i attended mentioned that any substance our loved ones pick up from the street can be laced with fentanyl :frowning:

Thanks for a Village Community Member for informing me of this. Sending love to her as she carries the torch for her son <3

This is neat & valuable!

I’ve also heard of the Bad Batch Alert app:

It notifies you of any bad batches of opioids in the area. Possibly only available in the Baltimore area right now - in collaboration with the Baltimore City Health Department (pretty cool!).

Anyone know if it’s available elsewhere?
