What we are doing
Knowing what’s in a drug keeps you safer. Street Check creates a streamlined process for collecting to-be-checked samples at the local level. This phone based app organizes the process for collecting info to carry out community drug checking, whether just using test strips or more complex devices. Street Check speeds analysis, provides easy to understand results back, and gives just-in-time reminders of key messages and information. To help program partners build more efficient and sustainable community drug checking, partners can tailor the app to the type of community drug checking they offer, can manage the types of information and materials that are provided at the share-back, and can see if and when result share backs occur. Street Check will standardize procedures and anonymous data collected about community drug checking so that programs can provide drug checking results faster and focus on doing what they do best: connecting with and supporting people who use drugs. A companion website of the same name will provide password-protected and secured access for participating programs to see the same data as in the app, and will house publicly available summaries and
interactive tools to explore trends.
