Implementation contexts and the impact of policing on access to supervised consumption services in Toronto, Canada: a qualitative comparative analysis

Abstract

Background

Supervised consumption services (SCS) are being implemented across Canada in response to a variety of drug-related harms. We explored the implementation context of newly established SCS in Toronto and the role of policing in shaping program access by people who inject drugs (PWID).

“That's a double-edged sword”: Exploring the integration of supervised consumption services within community health centres in Toronto, Canada

Highlights

  • Integrating SCS within health centres provided clients access other health services.
  • Hours of operation were seen as a barrier to SCS service uptake.
  • The building layouts created privacy and anonymity concerns for clients.
