BC has released new guidance on providing safe supply to people who use drugs amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. We have heard from PAN member and allied organizations about uncertainty on how these changes will be implemented, and how people can access safe supply across the province.
To help answer these questions from community-based organizations PAN hosted a webinar and Q&A session with Guy Felicella, who spent 30 years in addiction, dying and being brought back to life six times when the toxic drug supply hit the streets. With his treacherous journey through substance use Guy has become a respected and trusted expert, working as the Peer Clinical Advisor for the BC Centre on Substance Use.
