Croatian Institute of Public Health’s Laboratory for Psychoactive Substances launched in September 2019. Its primary objective is to collect information about the drug market, changes in consumption methods and the most commonly used drugs in Croatian cities. The laboratory received 250 syringes and needles from HELP association from Split, out of which 160 were used for analysis. During a visit by HRT, the lab 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, Andreja, expressed 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.
