Street Health Community - Overdose Prevention Site (OPS)

Provides a safe, hygienic environment for people to inject pre-obtained drugs under the supervision of staff. We provide sterile injection supplies, education, overdose prevention and intervention, nursing and other services and referrals.


People will use OPS for a number of reasons. They provide:

  • a safe, clean place to consume illegal substances
  • less risk of violence or confrontation with police
  • drug checking to detect adulterants using methods such as fentanyl test strips
  • emergency medical care in case of overdose, cardiac arrest or allergic reaction (anaphylaxis)
  • basic health services, such as wound care
  • testing for infectious diseases like HIV, Hepatitis C and Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs)
  • access to sterile drug use equipment and a place to safely dispose of it after use
  • health professionals and support staff, including for overdose intervention
