A next step in addressing substance misuse in our community

There is an evolving conversation taking place at the federal, provincial and local level about how we approach substance misuse in our communities. This conversation has the potential to broaden the way in which our community delivers services to address drug addiction – for the better. — Last month, the Toronto Medical Officer of Health, released a report recommending an integrated supervised injection service (SIS) model in Toronto. The Sandy Hill Community Health Centre, one of Ottawa Public Health’s (OPH) community partner agencies, has launched public consultations on their plans for submitting a federal exemption application to Health Canada in order to provide SIS for people struggling with drug addiction. Read more… A-next-step-in-addressing-substance-misuse-in-our-community
