?Trained staff and peers provide people who use
illicit drugs with a safe space to be monitored while they use, to help prevent
and recover from overdoses. VCH provides clinical support and harm reduction
supplies, while PREP Community Programs (PREP), a local not-for-profit agency,
staff the site.
The service is also being funded by VCH as well as Powell River's Community
Action Team (CAT) which includes members from 67 local organizations including
municipal government, Tla'amin Nation, first responders, frontline community
agencies, experts, residents and families with lived experience.
