This presentation provided an overview of the Safer Supply Ottawa program, as well as the results of a research project conducted in summer/fall 2023. The project focused on program participants who are frequently "restarted" on their Safer Supply program. Program restarts included participants who have stopped and subsequently restarted their Safer Supply program one or more times in the last year. This topic was selected to better understand the barriers faced by Safer Supply participants when engaging in their program, including barriers which result in these program interruptions.
