Housing overdose prevention site manual

Housing Overdose Prevention Sites (HOPS) opened as part of the provincial response to the opioid overdose (OD) emergency in December 2016 as directed by the British Columbia Minister of Health. HOPS are rooms in housing facilities where residents of those buildings can go to use substances. The primary goal is to provide a space for people to inject previously obtained illicit drugs, with sterile equipment, in a setting where trained HOPS staff/Peers can check-in, observe via a camera and intervene in overdoses as needed.
