Toronto has been facing an increasingly deadly opioid crisis and many are seeing their friends, colleagues and clients overdose on a daily basis. The installation of Supervised Injection Services (SIS) in Toronto cannot come any sooner. Toronto Public Health has moved as quickly as they can to address the increase in overdoses, through training and the distribution of Naloxone, but it still is not fast enough to respond to the emergency we are facing.
