MSORT is a collaborative pilot project serving people in Peterborough City and County with the intent to reduce overdoses and minimize the risk of harms related to overdose and substance use, especially opioids. The project is designed to enhance our community’s response to the opioid/drug poisoning/overdose crisis.
MSORT serves people in the County and City of Peterborough to try and reduce the negative health (physical, mental and emotional) impacts of a poisoned illicit drug supply, especially those related opioid overdoses, risk of overdose, and substance use disorder. While the people at risk of and who are experiencing overdoses are a priority for MSORT, the team can also support the people close to them who are also affected by the impacts of the current opioid crisis.
Rapid Re-Housing Program
The Rapid Re-Housing Program located out of our Haliburton region works with individuals and families who are experiencing homelessness to secure housing as quickly as possible. The supports are time limited and referrals to this program come from the City of Kawartha Lakes-Haliburton County By Name List.
