Drug Checking

Bip.Brussels - Zinneke
Since the drug checking service was implemented by Modus Vivendi in Belgium, we have been able to meet more than 1500 people who use drugs and set up specific counseling sessions. In Brussels , drug checking has been in place for more than 7 years. It is available in the city center, Modus Fiesta's venue and also at festival and party's by using a mobile lab set-up. This allows us to make a presentation of the differences between the populations encountered at festivals and in the Modus Fiesta info point by comparing their demands, their needs, the types of consumption and other aspects. This data is very useful to update our communication strategies and to improve the outreach capacity and implementation of this harm reduction service according to different fieldwork locations.
