Many people who use drugs buy together and split it amongst themselves, which we refer to as "splitting & sharing". While this is a common practice, restrictions related to splitting and sharing in overdose prevention services (OPS) or supervised consumption services (SCS) settings create barriers to accessibility and heighten risk for people accessing these services. A Canada-wide survey was developed and distributed, seeking feedback on the current restrictions to splitting and sharing from people who access OPS/SCS and people who work at OPS/SCS. The purpose of this report is to detail trends in the survey responses and to outline recommendations and next steps for the Splitting and Sharing Working Group.
