(Direct link | Source: Health Canada)


Supervised consumption sites (SCS) are a key part of an evidence-based treatment approach that saves lives. The services they offer not only ensure the health and safety of at-risk communities, but also connects them to social supports and vital ancillary services. Extensive research has validated their positive impact, including in the following ways:

  • Reduced HIV risk behavior
  • Increased use of addiction services
  • Improvement of public order
  • Reduced risk of overdose
  • Safety for women who use substances
  • No increase in drug use or crime
