Overdose prevention is the best defense against B.C.'s overdose crisis.
In a series of free events being held in six neighbourhoods in Vancouver, guest speakers from Megaphone Magazine and the Overdose Prevention Society will share their stories from the front lines of the overdose crisis facing B.C.
Speakers will include people who use drugs, first responders, and those with and without access to addiction treatment.
Also, to ensure your community has the skills and equipment it needs to respond to an overdose, free overdose training will be provided.
All events are free.
