Drug Checking to Support People Who Use Drugs
Drug checking in the United States is a relatively new public health intervention to support the health and autonomy of people who use drugs. From a public health perspective, the motivations behind pursuing drug checking are to attempt to address the major issue of the adulteration of the illicit drug supply. For on the ground harm reductionists and activists, drug checking is a mechanism of reducing risk but also for pleasure maximization. This workshop will provide background and history to how drug checking began, a snapshot of how drug checking is evolving within the US, including different drug checking methods being used by harm reduction activists and drug checking technicians around the country. This workshop will also cover general considerations when thinking about building a drug-checking program, including technology, cost, legalities, and implementation. There will be time for Q&A at the end of the session.
