Toronto Public Health (The Works), Queen West-Central Toronto Community Health Centre and South Riverdale Community Health Centre are planning to add small-scale supervised injection services to their existing clinical health and harm reduction services for people who inject drugs. These agencies have been providing services to people who inject drugs for over 20 years. Implementation of supervised injection services are part of the range of strategies to reduce harm. Supervised injection services provide a safer and hygienic environment for people to inject pre-obtained drugs under the supervision of a nurse.
A series of local open house or public meetings are being planned for community members to receive information about supervised injection services and share input about any issues or concerns. An online survey is also available for you to provide your feedback.
