Transforming Our Communities: Lived Experience Gallery

We asked people with lived experience of substance use to write about their experiences by answering these questions:

  • What is going on with fentanyl/meth for you in your community? Are there specific things that would help you and others that are using fentanyl/meth?
  • Can you share with us experiences you have had with police related to your substance use?
  • Has access to safer smoking supplies changed things for you in any way?

Here are their responses.
