International OD Awareness Day – August 31

August 31st marks International Overdose Awareness Day. Today we remember the loved ones we have lost to preventable overdose death. We need the Federal Government, the Province and #IslandHealth to establish SCS in our community and ensure that it is fully funded, staffed appropriately, culturally safe, and most importantly, meaningfully include people who use drugs. Government estimates say up to 800 will die of overdose this year in BC. We need supervised consumption now! No to bandaid solutions! Yes to supervised consumption services!
