Local agencies supporting those suffering from the opioid crisis marked International Overdose Day on Thursday as an opportunity to bring attention to the issue.
The opioid crisis is no longer an issue just for large cities. The Kingston area, as well as some villages north of the city, have overdose numbers that are aso concerning.
The event featured seven speakers from Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox and Addington Public Health, the Street Health Clinic, a local pharmacist, a representative from the Ontario Provincial Police and a Kingston mother of a victim of an overdose.
Approximately 15 people, along with local media, attended the conference.
The day is important for many reasons, said Rhonda Lovell, a public health nurse and MC of the conference.
aims to raise awareness of drug overdose and reduce the stigma of drug related death and injuries. balloons to mark those who have died from drug overdoses were set up around the conference room as well as outside the centre on Barrack Street and around the downtown area. A much smaller number of purple balloons were also on display to signify people who have been saved from overdoses.
The day also sends a message, Lovell said. infinite value of each human being nullifies presumption, stigma, prejudice towards people who use drugs or have died or sustained permanent injury from drug use. said it a time to remember and honour the lives that have been lost in our communities.
The day also hit home for Sue Deuchars of Kingston, who lost her 24 year old son, Devon, from a drug overdose in 2016.
overdose was preventable, she said at the conference. my experience, the stigma and marginalization of people who use substances is huge. said her son struggled with drug abuse for 12 years and said compassion should be the No. 1 support for people like her son.
really important for people to open their minds and their hearts and to lose the stigma surrounding addiction and to develop compassion, Deuchars said.
can have naloxone as a tool, we can have safe injection sites, which are all wonderful and needed, but I feel the public who don have personal experience with substance use or have loved ones I think it really important for people to step out of their frames of reference, she said. comes in many forms.
epidemic isn going away anytime soon. It a controversial issue, but I feel really strongly that this country needs to decriminalize, legalize and regulate all drugs. said that rather than incarcerate drug users, the government should use the money for treatment for addiction, for mental health for ongoing recovery programs and improving wait times for those who want and need help.
son kept trying to recover and was met with sometimes months of wait times from detox to treatment. Kieran Moore, medical officer of health for Kingston, Frontenac and Lennox and Addington Public Health, said the number of fatal overdoses in Ontario continues to rise and is a pressing public health issue.
In 2016, Moore said, more than 800 Ontarians died of drug overdoses.
a 19 per cent increase over the previous year, he said.
He said the opioid epidemic began 15 years ago and shows no signs of slowing down.
have lots of work to do to prevent further overdoses, he said.
Moore said drug users should be taking precautionary measures, such as having a naloxone kit with them while taking drugs and having a partner with them who could call 911 in case an overdose occurs.
Tina Knorr, an outreach worker with the Street Health Centre, said that since September 2015 when the centre started the Opioid Overdose Prevention program, 1,032 naloxone kits have been dispensed, 140 people have reported back to the centre that they used naloxone, with 56 of those calling 911 for further treatment.
Moore said anyone who overdoses and takes naloxone must go to the hospital because the life saving drug only temporarily stops the effects of an opioid overdose.
This year, Knorr said 437 kits have been dispensed from the centre, with 91 people reporting overdoses where naloxone was involved.
In August of this year alone, 72 naloxone kits were distributed.
Those statistics don reflect naloxone kits given out by local pharmacies.
Shoppers Drug Mart pharmacist Krina Vaghela said all of their local pharmacies, as well as their competitors have naloxone kits to distribute free of charge and without a prescription.
Insp. Pat Finnegan of the Napanee Ontario Provincial Police said that officers in Ontario soon will have the kits in their vehicles and encourage anyone who helps an overdosed person to call 911. The Ontario Good Samaritan law protects people from prosecution if they call 911 for a drug overdose.
When the conference concluded, a moment of silence took place to remember those who have died from drug overdoses.
After the conference, Deuchars told reporters it was important to tell the story about her son, to learn as much as I possibly could and pass the wisdom to everyone else. said Devon death profoundly affected her and her other son and daughter.
I would love to stay, but everything depends on whether I find work and an apartment.Plants have evolved some tricky mechanisms for dealing with freezing and even subzero temperatures. Herbaceous perennials use their leaves to make sugars through photosynthesis, which they turn into starch in the fall to better store carbohydrate reserves in their roots for the winter. Allowing the top growth to die back each fall is a clever way to survive. Once the ground has frozen they simply sleep it out, protected by the thermal mass of soil they live in. Soil temperatures remain pretty stable throughout the winter and they may be as much as twenty to thirty degrees warmer then ambient air temperatures.It’s their attempt to “build bridges”, creating a relationship of trust for resources.
