Public Health Sudbury & Districts is asking the community to share their thoughts on supervised consumption services and their place in Greater Sudbury. 

"By gathering feedback, we are able to determine the local needs and the feasibility of including supervised consumption services into our existing harm reduction strategies," said PHSD in a Facebook post.

Supervised consumption services are spaces where people can use drugs under the supervision of trained staff in a clean, safe, and non-judgmental environment. People are provided with safer drug use equipment and can also receive medical care and referrals to other health and social services.

Staff do not provide drugs to nor inject drugs for people who are consuming. People who use the service can also receive basic medical care and referrals to other health and social services. 

Supervised consumption services have been implemented in more than 29 locations across Canada, including Ontario.
