Philadelphia Department of Public Health resource hubs are located in five neighborhoods throughout the city. Through a partnership with the Division of Substance Use Prevention and Harm Reduction, resource hubs offer the following free harm reduction supplies:

  • Narcan (naloxone) – 1 box per person
  • Fentanyl test strips – packs of 5
  • Xylazine test strips – packs of 5

What are these materials?

Narcan (naloxone)
Narcan is the brand name for naloxone, a prescription medicine that reverses opioid overdoses. It temporarily blocks the effect of opioids and helps a person to start breathing again.

Fentanyl test strips
Fentanyl test strips are a tool to test drugs for the presence of fentanyl, a strong opioid.

Xylazine test strips
Xylazine test strips are a tool to test drugs for the presence of xylazine, an animal tranquilizer.

What are the requirements?

No information is required to obtain harm reduction supplies from a resource hub. Visitors interested in this service will be required to observe a short training on how to use the materials. This training lasts about five minutes.
