We provide harm reduction supplies, including safer injection, safer smoking and safer sex supplies along with harm reduction education and referrals to health services, addictions services and other social supports. We offer safe disposal of needles and other injection supplies. Harm reduction services are offered directly through Vancouver Coastal Health at many community health centres, through contracted agencies and in partnership with other community organizations.
We offer a mobile service for the entire Lower Sunshine Coast including Egmont, Port Melon, Gibsons, Sechelt, and Madeira Park. Clients leave a message &/or phone number on the pager. A harm reduction worker will then arrange to meet clients.
The goals of this program are to prevent infections, including HIV and Hepatitis C, to provide harm reduction education and support, and to connect clients to programs and services to improve health and well-being.
