Overdoses and health problems among people who use drugs are increasing. Safe supply models provide a regulated and known dose of opioids to reduce negative health consequences.

In this webinar we’ll explore:

  • What is safe supply?
  • Recent research on people’s preferences for different safe supply models.
  • What people say about the potential benefits of different models of safe supply including reduced overdose risk and criminal activity.
