Join this webinar launching the Harm Reduction Satellite Sites – Program Guide
The term “Satellite sites” is used to refer to informal harm reduction hubs operating out of the homes of people who use drugs. Informally operating in Toronto for over 20 years, these sites offer, at a minimum, access to sterile drug use supplies outside of more formal settings like health centres. Many Satellite sites offer much more than this – including naloxone and overdose response training, safe needle disposal, and referrals to health care services
In this guide, PWUD share their experiences in the hope that it will be helpful for community-based service providers who would like to develop similar programming, or explore other models of providing health and harm reduction services to people who use drugs, particularly in residential and other community settings.
Webinar panelists include Liam Michaud, Rhiannon Thomas, Rahema and other satellite workers and service providers. The conversation will be moderated by Gillian Kolla.
