“OVERDOSE PREVENTION SITE” ANKORS BC – Awareness Raising
This video from ANKORS produced by Watershed Productions takes us inside Nelson’s Overdose Prevention Site. Vera Horsman – OPS Coordinator, Amber Struekens – Peer Navigator, and Cheryl Dowden – Executive Director speak to how the OPS works within the harm reduction model, provides a range of services to people who use drugs from all backgrounds and works to build community for those considered most vulnerable in our community. Funded by Community Action Initiative, this video was made to educate the general public about the OPS and give voice to the those that use and manage the services there. Shot and edited by Amy Bohigian with original music by Ben Euerby.
