In Croatia, the laboratory for psychoactive substances at the Institute of Public Health began operations last year. Its primary goal is to gather data about the drug market, changes in consumption methods and the most commonly used drugs in cities across the country. Recently, HELP association from Split provided the lab with 250 samples of syringes and needles, out of which 160 were analyzed. During a visit by HRT to the lab, they reported that there was no trace of Fentanyl, the most dangerous drug on the market at the time. However, they did find cocaine and methadone in the syringes.
The head of the laboratory for psychoactive substances from drugs, Andreja, expressed her concern about the significant quantity of used drug addict syringes found in one place. She noted how the consumption method of cocaine is different from using a syringe and was surprised to find it well represented in them. Methadone was found to be the most commonly used substance in the syringes. The team had to be vigilant while handling these samples to prevent any incidents from occurring.
