Drug Testing

Dates and times TBC

LUSA does not condone drug use and it’s safest for you not to use drugs, but given some of you may have decided to despite the risk, it’s important to keep you safe. This checking service is about LUSA doing our bit to ensure everyone returns home safely at the end of the event.

Harm reduction counselling will also be provided as part of the service.




Keeping Yourself Safe


Based on public health advice from the NZ Drug Foundation on ‘Safer Partying’, below are some tips for keeping yourself safe when attending our festival

  • Avoid mixing any drugs (including alcohol and medications) as this greatly increases your risk of negative effects or overdose.
  • Stick to your limits. Only have on you what you plan to use as it can be hard to stick to decisions you made once intoxicated.
  • Stay hydrated. If you are doing a lot of dancing or physical activities, aim to drink a glass of water per hour and take regular breaks.
  • Look out for your mates and check in regularly to make sure everyone is okay and able to get home.
  • If choosing to use drugs, plan for the high and the recovery. Make sure you have the experience you want and that it does not impact on other commitments. Research what to expect from the substance you are planning to use, decide how much you want to use while you’re still sober, and test your product using a drug checking service to check it is what you think it is. Measure your dose, and make sure you know where you will be staying for your recovery.
  • Do not take drugs from an unknown source or stranger.
  • Be careful of sharing water from an unknown source or stranger, as this can sometimes contain something unexpected.
  • Let your body recover. Have a safe and comfortable place to recover after using drugs, and avoid using other drugs when coming down as this can put more strain on your body and make the eventual comedown worse. Most drugs force the release of feel good chemicals and if you use frequently you can run down your reserves which means longer comedowns, milder highs and potential addiction.
  • Reflect. Check in with yourself that your use is not impacting upon other parts of your life. If it is, reach out for help to change your use.
  • For urgent help call 111 and ask for an Ambulance (the Police will not be informed of overdose / drug-related emergencies). For support and information contact:
