Hamilton Urban Core Community Health Centre - Supervised Consumption Site

SCS are an entry point to treatment and social services for people who are ready to stop or reduce their use of substances. They do not provide their own drugs or substances.

People will use SCS 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
