Overdose Outreach Team

We have a team of outreach and social workers who connect people, who have recently experienced opioid overdose and/or are at high risk for opioid overdose, to addictions care and support. 

We help clients start treatment for opioid use disorder, connect to other health and social services, and provide general harm reduction and overdose prevention education.
