The laboratory for psychoactive substances and drugs at the Croatian Institute of Public Health began operations in September last year. Their primary objective is to gather information about the drug market, changes in consumption patterns, and the most commonly used drugs in Croatian cities. During their visit to the laboratory, HELP association from Split presented them with 250 samples of syringes and needles, out of which 160 were analyzed.
The lab’s head, Andreja, expressed concern about the large amount of used syringes found in one place, particularly for drug addicts. She noted that while cocaine is consumed differently than using syringes, it was surprising to see it well represented in the samples. Methadone was found to be the most common substance in the syringes. The team had to exercise caution during sample handling to avoid any incidents.
