The Arizona State Public Health Laboratory has created a program to screen blood samples from individuals with a suspected opioid overdose in order to better understand which opioids are responsible for causing overdoses in the state. Health care providers and institutions can request a courier to pick up samples which are then tested for the qualitative identification of opioids, fentanyl analogs, benzodiazepines, stimulants, cannabinoids, and synthetic cannabinoids. This is the Arizona Department of Health Services website for the laboratory testing program.
