About Simcoe Muskoka Opioid Strategy
The Simcoe Muskoka Opioid Strategy (SMOS) is a multi-sector collaboration formed to address the opioid crisis in Simcoe and Muskoka, and the harms it is causing to individuals, families and communities. SMOS is doing so by means of a comprehensive region-wide strategy, organized by the following pillars: Prevention, Treatment, Harm Reduction, Enforcement, Emergency Management, Data & Evaluation, and Lived Experience. Through this strategy, SMOS aims to address opioid-related harms in our region, including opioid misuse, addiction, and overdose.

The Executive Summary of the SMOS Final Report.
The SMOS Lived Experience Survey was led by the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU) and the David Busby Street Centre, with contributions from the Steering Committee of SMOS. The purpose of the survey was to engage those with lived experience of opioid use for their perspectives on community needs, to help inform the work plans of SMOS.
