Help Not Harm will host an educational meetup to discuss the different approaches to drug testing in other jurisdictions. Speakers will present on these methodologies and a discussion will be hosted in relation to Ireland’s approach to this service.

Drug Testing, or Drug Checking, is a harm reduction service to test substances for contaminates and purity.
“Front of House” testing is a service that offers real-time results usually within 5–15 minutes directly communicated to the patron.
“Back of House” is to describe testing drug samples made through drop-in bins that are collected for the purpose of testing for contaminates and/ or potency typically communicated through all event and community service providers.
Drug testing is usually free and anonymous.
