 Fentanyl and Xylazine Test Strips

Fentanyl test strips (FTS) are a form of inexpensive drug testing technology that can help detect the presence of fentanyl and other fentanyl-analogs in a drug sample prior to use. FTS do not show the amount, purity, or potency of fentanyl in the sample. 

Fentanyl Test Strip FAQ (ca.gov) 

Xylazine test strips work similarly to Fentanyl test strips: detecting the presence of Xylazine in a substance, but not the amount, purity, or potency of the xylazine in the sample.  

Fentanyl and Xylazine test strips can be accessed via the Department of Health and Human Services free of charge to individuals of the Long Beach Community and Community Based Organizations. Please fill out the order form below. 


Naloxone/Narcan

Naloxone/Narcan is an FDA approved medication that reverses an opioid overdose. It acts by binding to opioid receptors and blocks the effects of opioids. Naloxone can quickly restore breathing to an individual who has stopped breathing due to opioids. 

Naloxone can be obtained from your medical provider, pharmacies, and community-based organizations. Narcan can be purchased over the counter from local pharmacies including CVS, Rite-Aid, Walgreens, etc.  

Naloxone is available through the Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services for free for individuals of the community

*We are unable to provide Narcan/Naloxone to Community Based Organizations. If you are a Community Based Organization and are interested in obtaining Narcan, please apply through the Naloxone Distribution Project via DHCS. 

To determine if our distribution program is effective and obtain data from the Narcan that the Department of Health and Human Services provides, we ask that you fill out the form below. It is not required to obtain Narcan. 

Where else can you get it?
Many community-based organizations provide naloxone to community members interested in obtaining it.

You can also get it delivered to your home
