Drug checking is a harm reduction response to help prevent people who use drugs from consuming substances they did not intend to purchase and to provide the opportunity to make informed decisions about drug use.

Substance use stigma prevents people from engaging in harm reduction practices.

In this podcast episode, Samantha Davis discusses her recent paper “Substance Use Stigma and Community Drug Checking: A Qualitative Study Examining Barriers and Possible Responses” published within the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.

Samantha Davis has her Master of Social Work from the University of Victoria and a Bachelors of Arts from the University of Toronto in Criminology.
