Resources for People Who Use Drugs

People who use drugs are experts -- that's one of our guiding principles. Accordingly, people who use drugs play significant roles in every part of our work, and are paid for their expertise.

Action for Safer Supply - People Who Use Drugs Working Group

Purpose: As a working group composed exclusively of people who use drugs (PWUD), Action for Safer Supply advocates for expanded access to safer supply for PWUD across the country.

Current activities: Finalizing a National Advocacy Toolkit on Safer Supply, OAT, and Harm Reduction. The working group is also working on an anti-stigma and anti-shame campaign #NoShameNovember, to be launched in November 2022.
