Want to donate a sample?
You can donate any drug refuse like baggies, cookers, cottons, pipes, or syringes at one of our community drop-off locations. All samples can be anonymously donated at Project Weber/RENEW, AIDS Care Ocean State, and RICARES. Check back here for updates as we expand drop-off locations!
How are we testing samples?
We will use advanced toxicology testing to test for substances including opioids, stimulants, novel synthetic drugs, and active cut. Samples will be tested only for drugs and all testing will be anonymous so it is not linked to any individual.
How can I find out the results?
Local drug supply data will be posted on PreventOverdoseRI.org and distributed as alerts via email through the Rhode Island Department of Health listserv. We will also distribute results to harm reduction organizations and community partners in Rhode Island (including Project Weber/RENEW, RICARES, AIDS Care Ocean State, Parent Support Network, VICTA).
Also check out our Twitter and Instagram pages where we will also share what we found and additional info about specific substances in the supply.
