Overdose support group wants more detox facilities

Winnipeg Sun, April 8, 2019

An overdose support and advocacy group is calling on the public to help pressure the province into providing more medically-assisted detox facilities and funding for long-term treatment and support.

Arlene Last-Kolb said she’s been calling for more support to help people kick addictions since serving on various committees after the death of her son Jessie from a fentanyl overdose in July 2014, and the need has never been greater than now, in the midst of a meth crisis.
