Fentanyl Exposure

Project LIFE is a pilot program by Columbus Public Health to reduce the rate of accidental overdose by limiting involuntary fentanyl exposure. Fentanyl testing strips are a life-saving overdose prevention tool, empowering individuals who use drugs to know if a substance has been contaminated with fentanyl and to take action to reduce the risk of overdose.
