The Whitehorse Supervised Consumption Site is located at 6189-6th Ave (the site can be accessed from the gate on the corner of 5th and Cook across from the Mary House). We are open Monday to Friday from 10:30 AM to 7:00 PM (the site is closed on statutory holidays).
The site provides a safe and confidential space for people to consume their drugs by injection, snorting, or swallowing (smoking coming soon!). Friendly and non-judgmental staff will help out in the event of an overdose and can provide health care services, referrals, supportive listening, drug checking and other support as needed. We have computer access, snacks, hot drinks, and a telephone available to people accessing our services. Naloxone and harm reduction kits can also be picked up at the site.
You do not need to give your name or personal information to use the supervised consumption site so your confidentiality is assured. We have an exemption from sections of the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act so you cannot get into legal trouble for drugs while using the site.
For more information, please call the Team Lead (Jesse) at (867) 687-4545 or the Program Manager (Jill) at (867) 335-8265. Stay connected to Blood Ties on Facebook to find out about any changes to our hours and announcements about the opening of our smoking room. We look forward to your visit!
