Sharing the evidence: TOSCA and drug consumption sites in Ottawa

Does Ottawa need supervised drug consumption facilities?

This question was the focus of the Toronto and Ottawa Supervised Consumption Assessment, a four-year scientific study conducted by researchers from St. Michael's Hospital, who concluded that such sites would improve the health among drug users in Ottawa and could also reduce public drug use and save money for the health system.

As part of Ottawa's AIDS Awareness Week, researchers from the TOSCA study will present their findings to the community on November 29 at 6pm at the main branch of the Ottawa Public Library.

Hosted by the Campaign for Safer Consumption Sites in Ottawa, the event will also feature speakers from Ottawa's Youth Services Bureau and the Drug Users Advocacy League (DUAL). A panel discussion will follow.
