I just finished creating a compilation of various resource documents into one extensive reader, with the primary focus being on organizing as a drug user group, called There Is No Authority but Yourself.
Topics included are: harm reduction 101; decolonization and harm reduction; how to register as a harm reduction supply distribution site; opiate overdoses, naloxone, and how to register as a Take Home Naloxone site; how to run a pop-up overdose prevention service site (both injection and inhalation); tools for running a drug user group (including how to register as a society); income clawback exemption information; information on the mental health act; and information on safe supply.
This document is living, meaning that some of the information may need revisions or may not be totally up to date. If there are corrections that need to be made, do not hesitate to contact me.
Moreover, please share this document as widely as possible and if anyone has any feedback they can send it my way.
It is available here: https://towardtheheart.com/resource/there-is-no-authority-but-yourself/open
Hope folks find this helpful!
Thanks for sharing this Eris and for talking more about it on the COP call this morning. Reminder for those who wish to have a paper copy sent to them instead of an electronic one - please email Eris at Eris.Nyx@bccdc.ca . The document is also available under the Resources, OD Response tab on the site too.
