B.C. has services that prescribe hydromorphone as a safer solution to the poisonous supply of street heroin. Vancouver will soon “beg in offering pharmaceutical-grade pills to opioid drug users in an attempt to prevent deaths…” And there will be a “new hydromorphone pilot project [which] …will dispense pills for drug users to take with them.”

Opioid Therapy Costs

$25K per year for injectable therapy per patient to visit a clinic to inject under supervision

$700 per year for two pills, three times a day for a year that can be taken home. //tgam.ca/2Q3I3Pb

Bulletin:

Waiting (for treatment) in Ontario

The Ontario government has changed the names  and increased the number of regulations for Safe Injection Sites. They have promised more wrap around services. Will they deliver #safesupplies, desired supports, housing, and promote a dignified community. It is time to ask the government to show up “For the people”.
