SAHATIHAHARÁ:NE DETOX CENTER OFFERING FENTANYL TESTING STRIPS AND NALOXONE KITS
The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Sahatihahará:ne Detox Center is notifying the community that they have fentanyl testing strips and naloxone kits available for anyone interested, based on a first come, first serve basis, while supplies last.
Fentanyl testing strips (FTS) are an effective method of helping prevent drug overdoses and reducing harm. FTS are small strips of paper that can detect the presence of fentanyl in different kinds of drugs. Naloxone kits are portable pouches containing an opioid antidote that can be administered by injection or through the nose to revive an unresponsive person who is overdosing.
The Sahatihahará:ne Detox Center is located at 44 James Lane (former Group Home) in the district of Kawehno:ke. The detox center is currently not accepting clients at this time. A communication to the community will follow to inform them when clients will be accepted.
