DHCS Launches Life-Saving Initiative: Free Fentanyl Test Strips to Curb Statewide Overdoses

The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) unveiled the rollout of distribution of free, all-in-one fentanyl test strip (FTS) kits, aimed at curbing drug overdoses statewide. As long as funding permits, qualifying organizations eligible for the Naloxone Distribution Project (NDP) can now seek free FTS kits via the online application process. These comprehensive kits simplify the procedure of testing substances for fentanyl, a potent opioid often mixed with other drugs, posing severe overdose risks. Each kit conveniently packages a measuring scoop, the fentanyl test strip, a water pouch, and testing instructions. Spread the word among your community allies and direct any further inquiries to naloxone@dhcs.ca.gov.
