Fetanyl abuse kills — but it doesn’t have to.
The Patch4Patch program is saving lives in communities across Ontario right now.
After North Bay experienced at least 15 overdoses in six years, their Drug Strategy Committee worked with, local police, physicians, and pharmacists to come up with the Patch4Patch program. It requires legitimate users to hand back their used fentanyl patches to pharmacists before new patches are provided.
The program has saved lives and reduced crime in North Bay — there hasn’t been a single death from a fentanyl overdose there in the past 12 months. Dozens of other communities have begun implementing their own Patch4Patch programs.
That’s why MPP Vic Fedeli has introduced Bill 33, the Safeguarding our Communities Act, to bring Patch4Patch to the rest of the province.
Sign our petition to support Patch4Patch province wide — and together, we can help stop fentanyl abuse in Ontario.
