MySafe Society - a safer supply pilot project explained

MySafe Society is one of several safer supply pilot projects in British Columbia.

It provides around 130 people in the province with a prescription supply of Dilaudid – hydromorphone tablets that are taken orally.

Dilaudid is an opioid that is sometimes used to treat pain.

The prescriptions are intended to allow people who had been using street drugs containing fentanyl the chance to no longer depend on the illicit drug market.

Participants in the My Safe program access their prescription Dilaudid via a machine that uses a biometric scan of their hand to verify their identity.

My safe is currently operating in Vancouver and Victoria. It receives funding from Health Canada’s Substance Use and Addictions program, as do a number of other safer supply pilot projects in the country. My Safe’s Samantha Monckton spoke with People First Radio about the program.
