Drug Alerts


Health service providers and community agencies communicate drug alerts when there is evidence to suggest an adulterated drug or drug of elevated potency is in circulation.
 
Recommendations for Communicating Drug Alerts: Care must be taken when advising substance using populations about the dangers of adulterants or changes in potency of street drugs. The BC Centre for Disease Control has developed recommendations based on consultation with people who use drugs and health service providers.
 
Template for Communicating Drug Alerts: Use this template to create an alert poster. Be sure to follow the recommendations above.
