Overdose Prevention Sites Vancouver


Overdose Prevention Sites or Supervised Consumption Sites operate under exemptions from federal drug laws and allow clients to use illicit drugs without persecution. Overdose prevention sites are staffed by nurses, peers, and outreach staff who are ready to respond in the case of an overdose and can offer fentanyl screening of a client’s drug before use. They are also amazing resources for support and referral to other services. There has never been an overdose death at an overdose prevention site.

  • The Lifeguard App uses an alarm/snooze method to check in with you and will call emergency medical services if you become unresponsive.
  • The Brave App connects you with a peer who can call an emergency contact of your choice or emergency services if you become unresponsive.
  • The National Overdose Response Service is a phone line that connects you with a peer volunteer who can wait on the line and call help for you if needed.
