Harm Reduction

StreetWorks

StreetWorks is a harm reduction program providing safer injection and inhalation supplies to individuals in the Niagara Region.

 

StreetWorks also operates a Consumption & Treatment Services (CTS) site where individuals can use their substances under the supervision of medical and harm reduction staff.

 

Harm reduction is an important aspect of the treatment continuum and aims to empower and respect a person’ right to self-determination.

 

StreetWorks staff works with individuals where they are at in their substance use and celebrates any positive change. If you think a person you are working with who is not or is pre-contemplative in their stage of change we can help them protect their health.

How to Access

StreetWorks is committed to reducing barriers in accessing harm reduction services.  We provide a variety of harm reduction materials that can be accessed through our office, our mobile delivery service or through one of our many satellite sites.
