How Vancouver Is Helping Opioid Addicts

How Vancouver is helping opioid addicts

In the past two years, more than 8,000 people in Canada have lost their lives due to opioid overdoses.

In Vancouver, the downtown east side is the epicentre of the problem, and much of the area's drug is supply tainted with the powerful synthetic opioid Fentanyl.

But under the city's unusual approach to the problem, users can access supervised injection sites, which allow people to use illegal drugs with trained staff present.

The BBC's Jeremy Cooke reports on how the city is treating its opioid epidemic as a public health crisis, rather than a criminal issue.

This video contains scenes of drug use that some viewers may find upsetting.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 4


"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
]1 John 4:1 Complete Jewish Bible
