VICE presents an immersive and personal feature film about the fentanyl crisis in Canada told from the perspective of a community of drug users.
This video has been edited from its original version due to privacy concerns surrounding one of its subjects.

Xanax clonazepam, buprenorphine, diazepam, zopiclone, mirtazapine pregabs ect. Heroin coke and crack cocaine occasionally. All stuff I need to stop. And all the other random pills. I need the strength to stop.
I haven't done and I will never use illegal drugs but a drug addict who used to live on my old street once told me that using heroin is called "chasing the dragon" apparently addicts of hard drug are always trying to get the "major hit" and they can't,its impossible to catch the dragon or get the infinite high because the only time you got that high was the very first time you shoot/snort/smoke whichever drug you do.you're chasing a high that you'll never achieve
That drug addict on my street is now completely sober.she ended up uprooting both herself and her son to the other side of the country.she told no one where they were going so that her old drug buddies would never find out and find them.she and her son are now doing extremely well and all it took was to move far away from the environment and the people they were surrounded by.
I just want to create a treatment center that will have individualized compassionate effective care. These people deserve better. The system fucking failed them. Anyone that’s actually gotten healing from these treatment centers, great job. But I want justice and real care for people who have been preyed on by these so called “professionals”
We need to improve the waited time, not two months waiting time for methadone and suboxone, we as Canadians are paying for mass immigration, when we should be help Canadians first, "CANADA FIRST", this is a perfect example, this young guy in the documentary went to the doctor for help and he has to wait 3/5 months and in other provinces it's almost a year!!..... That's a death sentence for some and one death is too many. when it can be prevented, methadone & suboxone really works. Our prime minister Justin Trudeau just signed a massive spending bill to bring in families from Somali to buy a United Nations seat in the security Council which is a pool of corrupted politicians wasting our tax dollars!!
Being a human is hard, as much as we can feel beautiful feelings we can also feel ugly ones. Don't block out the ugly or you'll also block the beautiful. Don't turn to drugs. Meditate, exercise, volunteer, talk, help animals, help others, make connections. There is a deeper warmer happiness beyond drugs and it exists for us all x
BULL SHITTTT... When is the last time you did a OPIATE!!! This is a asshok documentary. When you go to a Methadone clinic... They ask you about opiates. I know EXPONENTIALLY MORE THAN THESE PEOPLE. NEED HELP GET IN TOUCH. I KNOW MORE AND HAVE LOST MORE FRIENDS THAN YOU HIT VEINS..... VICE AND THIS IS WRONG. HIT ME UP IF YOU WANNA TALK TO AN EDUCATED ADDICT FROM BOTH SIDES OF THE TRACK..
Any young person reading this, please don’t ever try anything other than vapes or weed. Please don’t. They will kill you and ruin your life. Completely change your life for the worst. It isn’t cool, people will just look upon you as a different creature, not human. Don’t do drugs. Again, stick with vapes and weed.
WTH thats bullshit in ontario they start you the day you walk in their all public clinics . take a bus to toronto ryan ... Ahaha because clearly calgary sucks if they want their addicts to wait months for methdome .
the only reason that doctor said the addict had to wait several months to go into medication-supplemented rehab is because of canada's free health care system. All of the government money goes towards non-drug addict healthcare obviously, and leaves the addicts shit out of luck. America has a much better healthcare system. USA
This was filmed in Calgary where I spent a lot of time downtown. Seen this drug. They call it a bean, or beans, or fake oxys. I tried it once, the smallest line and i insanely sick and high. Scary shit.
i was homeless under a bridge, literally. drug addicted loser for over 10 years of my life. lost everything including my soul. lost over 20 people to this disease that were my friends that are now in caskets. now i'm clean. 3 years on february 5th, 2018. i have a career with the state of ny making over 40, 000 a year, a car, my own place. most importantly, i have my soul back and a relationship with god. anybody who is struggling with this disease and is feeling hopeless, helpless, lost, and like a complete waste of a life, i can relate to you. i promise you that if you truly have the desire to want to stop you can. go to a detox..then a rehab..then a halfway house, then supportive living. you don't need money social services will pay for it all. pray to god, stay focused, stay away from people who will try to bring you down because i promise you MISERY LOVES COMPANY. get rid of all the drug connected phone numbers from your phone and change your number. figure out what you want to do for work that will make you happy for the rest of your life and keep that goal in mind and then submerse yourself in everything you'll need to do to acquire that job. ie. trade school, vocational school, military, college,...happiness is what you've been missing so strive to get it, it's the only thing that matters. always remember the loneliness, sadness, desperation, suicidal thoughts, and that jails institutions, and DEATH are the ONLY options available with your drug use. i pulled myself out of the abyss because i wanted to. i did it because i knew i was better than living under a bridge. i was worth so much more. you are, too. Please do it for yourself. ask for help. you're worth it. God bless you....
Remember the crack epidemic, the war on drugs, now they have these sympathy commercials because white people are suffering! Throw their asses in jail like ya'll did black folks! GOD I HATE THIS WHITE SYSTEM!
cut out the roots and ur billion dollar pharmasutycal industry and all the money they give to support corupt poletisions and presedents.Instead lieng to the public and busting small dealers,like u are protecting the public.Where cia and all these fuckers at the top have always bean killing people.MOST PUBLIC IS STUPID HOW THE GAME IS RUN.
My god thank u clean from years of heroin addiction.But whats going on today with young people the drug company's cartel cia and fbi are killing people.They consider u waist .God I wish I can help young people.But i cant u need to find ur soul.
It doesn't matter for how long you are not using, one day or 10 years. Every day without drugs is the best day, no matter what. And every next day will be a better day. Don't think about the distant future, and how long and difficult it will be. Just do whatever it takes to START that first day. Just stay clean TODAY, life will change for the better by itself. 15 years of heroin, i don't remember for how long i am clean, but it doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is to smile today. Stay alive kids.
"The withdraws are the easiest part of recovery"??? Ummmm what?? Yea because having the shakes, cold and hot sweats, vomiting bile because there's nothing is your stomach, diarrhea and having pains all over your body is easy!!! SMFH FFS
These drugs are initiated by the elites who are making massive amounts of money and growing in demonic power. They are wiping out populations that threaten their control, like the Native reserves.
We need more people to research these truths and follow the money trail back to the real dealers who are letting this stuff happen.
I pray for wisdom and exposure and healing for these trapped souls.
I asked my anesthesiologist what he was putting my system before I had my shoulder operated on and he listed out multiple drugs including fentanyl. kinda crazy. On another subject don't them fool you, weed is one of the most addictive drugs on the planet becoming increasingly potent with every harvest. It might not kill you, but IT WILL slow you down
I'm curious how much money we have to spend as a culture punishing and policing before it becomes obvious that taking exceptional care of every child from birth - and making that our number one national priority - is the most intelligent thing we can do financially, emotionally, mentally and physically. Teaching skills about how to live well. Teaching students to create exceptional trauma-free relationships. Teaching people to measure and grow sustainable well-being.
Make drugs legal, controlled, taxed and legally produced. It will reduce deaths from using poor quality or unknown stuff, it will take the best source of income from black market, much less money spent for fight with crime, less random victims, less dealers, additional income from taxes. With that much money saved you can spend only fraction on clinics offering help to those, who are addicted. Don't force them to stop right away, give them what they need, control it, reduce doses and help getting back to normal without that big shock. And most of all, don't tread them as offenders, offer help for nothing. They won't steal and kill just to get a lot of money to pay to drug deals if they can get help for free.
Many countries create this kind of market because there is always someone that will pay for that. There is always someone that will get addicted and in lots of countries they can't count for any help. You go to clinic and instead of help you'll get arrested because you used something illegal. That nonsense.
The devil! I take 100mg of plaster every 3 days for medical reasons. It changes the entire behavior even in this dosage! I have so far withdrawn cold 3 times. Every time I thought, it was not bad, 3 weeks of chills and cold sweat, but then it came first. In the end, I always took 6 weeks until I was back to normal. Also Tilidin is a Mistzeug. Unfortunately, I can not last long without strong medications. At the latest after 2 months I have to start again with Ferntanyl in at least 25mg, otherwise I can only lie in bed for weeks. I wish there was something else. Marijuana would be worth a try, but I do not smoke.
Community pharmacists are the health professionals most accessible to the public. They supply medicines in accordance with a prescription or, when legally permitted, sell them without a prescription. In addition to ensuring an accurate supply of appropriate products, their professional activities also cover counselling of patients at the time of dispensing of prescription and non-prescription drugs, drug information to health professionals, patients and the general public, and participation in health-promotion programmes. They maintain links with other health professionals in primary health care.
