The Windsor-Essex Community Opioid and Substance Strategy (WECOSS) was developed in response to the opioid crisis with the vision of creating a local response plan relevant to the issues in Windsor-Essex. The Strategy aims to address substance use through a community-driven action plan. It is a multi-year strategy led by a diverse network of community organizations and people with lived experience (PWLE) using substances.
The second annual report provides an overview and highlights the activities undertaken through the strategy in its second year of implementation (2019). It describes the community impacts of substance use, the WECOSS Action Plan, the activities identified for implementation in Year Two, progress made on these activities, and future direction of the Strategy.
