About The Overdose Prevention Line
Grenfell Ministries Overdose Prevention Line (O.P.L) is a number you can call if you are about to use drugs and are located in Ontario.
This is a peer development initiative, and your call will be answered without judgment. You will be asked for your first name, your location and a few questions in relation to anonymous data collection, no personal data that can be used to identify you will be collected or stored.
The operator will stay with you on the phone line while you use drugs, in the event that they receive no response after administration of narcotics the operator will call 911 and alert them to a possible overdose at the location you had given.
We will be launching as a pilot project on Saturday February 01 2020 at 10am until Saturday April 25 2020 at midnight.
After our pilot project, in response to COVID-19 we will be releasing a report within two weeks of our pilot project end date however, there will be NO INTERRUPTION IN SERVICE!
The Line will run 7 days a week Monday to Friday from 12 pm to 10pm
Saturday - Sunday from Noon until Midnight.
