Leadership student shows life-saving importance of safe injection sites
Greig works as an overdose response worker at the Moss Park Overdose Prevention Site.
Here is an excerpt from the story:
“‘So when people come here they feel safe. They feel supported,’ says Sarah Greig, an overdose response worker at Moss Park. ‘They don't feel shamed and blamed and stigmatized, as they have been by their family, by some health care providers and by some social service providers.’ […]
“‘We need to nurture people and we need to point out people’s strengths instead of just identifying their weaknesses,’ Greig says, adding that people use drugs for a wide range of things.”
