Grand Ballroom (FGH)


People who use drugs are at increased risk of overdose when they transition into housing, particularly for people who have moved from community supports on the street to using alone in permanent supportive housing. Panelists will share successful approaches used to reduce this risk and engage people who use drugs in the implementation of programs. This will be a multi-disciplinary shared presentation and discussion that centers the experience of people who use drugs who have transitioned into PSH. It will give a new understanding of the different roles peers and staff fulfill within overdose prevention, and how to value them independently for increased community engagement and success.
