CONSUMPTION AND TREATMENT SERVICES
May 23, 2023
Consumption and Treatment Services (CTS) help save lives and create safer communities. They provide a safe and clean space for people to use their own drugs under the care of health professionals. They can connect clients to treatment for addictions, mental illness, and other health and social services.
A CTS is desperately needed in the city of Barrie to prevent overdose deaths and help connect people who use drugs to other health and social services they may want but have difficulty accessing, including mental health and addiction treatment, primary care, and housing. A CTS would also help to reduce public drug use and improperly discarded needles.
