JACS Toronto is an organization that provides a range of services to support individuals and families living with addiction in Mississauga, Ontario. JACS Toronto works to reduce the impact of overdose on those affected by substance use disorder through prevention, education, intervention and harm reduction strategies. The organization offers a variety of programs designed to help people who are struggling with drug or alcohol abuse as well as their family members.
One way JACS Toronto supports overdose in Mississauga, Ontario is through providing access to naloxone kits for free distribution throughout the community. Naloxone blocks opioid receptors in the brain which can reverse an opioid-related overdose when administered properly and quickly enough after it has occurred. By making these kits readily available at no cost, JACS Toronto helps ensure that anyone experiencing an accidental or intentional overdose has access to life-saving treatment without delay due its widespread availability across various locations within Mississauga, Ontario such as pharmacies and social service agencies like shelters or food banks where vulnerable populations may be more likely located than other areas..
In addition, JACS Toronto also provides educational workshops about how drugs affect both physical health & mental wellbeing while emphasizing safe usage practices so users are aware they should not mix different types of drugs together nor take larger doses than what was prescribed if any were taken at all – this way overdoses can be prevented from occurring altogether if proper care is taken while using substances recreationally/medically alike; additionally one on one counselling sessions are offered too for those seeking personalized guidance & support related specifically towards their own situation(s). All these initiatives overall help create greater awareness around drug safety & provide necessary resources required for helping prevent further overdoses from happening again – thus allowing people suffering from addiction have better chances surviving long term whilst still being able accessing much needed assistance whenever needed regardless whether it’s during times crisis (such emergencies)or otherwise (ongoing lifestyle changes).
