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 code (which is comprised of the first 2 letters of your first name, the first 2 letters of your last name, and the last two digits of your date of birth), 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.
Our Pilot Project ended on April 25 and our subsequent findings are featured below!
The Line will continue to run 7 days a week
Monday to Friday from 12 pm to 10pm
Saturday - Sunday from Noon until Midnight
You can call us if you are about to use drugs or if you are in need of harm reduction supplies or assistance with at home detoxing.
