Insite - Not Just Injecting, But Connecting

The HCLU has finalized and published its latest video on Insite, the only supervised injecting facility of North-America. Our movie shows Insite from a perspective that is very different from the dark picture the Canadian government tries to paint of it. Insite is so much more than just an injecting site. It connects people to other services, such as shelter, food, detoxification, rehabilitation, financial literacy and sports facilities.

Filming people coming in and out of Insite and Onsite (the detox/shelter service on the top floors) - seeing the enthusiasm and spirit of the community, the commitment of the staff members, the struggle for survival on the street - told us so much more than reading the research data proving Insite’s efficency in reducing HIV infections and overdose deaths. This is a place where clients are reminded that they are not merely clients, but people with dignity. We hope our video will help you appreciate all these features of Insite. We hope this movie will inspire people fighting for humane drug policies all over the world - with your support, we will be able to produce many other movies like this!
