KENORA, DRYDEN, FORT FRANCES, ONTARIO ~~~~~ July 21, 2022 (LSNews) Northwestern Health Unit (NWHU) is asking members of the public what they think about supervised consumption services through an online survey.
Supervised consumption services/sites are legally sanctioned spaces where people are allowed to use pre-obtained illegal drugs in a clean, safe, and supportive environment. No illegal drugs can be acquired on site. The sites aim to reduce overdose related injuries and death and can help to reduce public drug use, improperly discarded needles, and minimize the risks related to sharing or reusing drug-use equipment. Supervised consumption services also increase access to healthcare and supportive services for people who use drugs.
