BeSafe is an app that connects people who use drugs with community members when they are vulnerable to overdose.
As somebody with lived experience of drug use, we recognize that you are the expert on what you need. That’s why BeSafe is BYOGP—bring your own game plan. BYOGP honours your expertise, autonomy and dignity as a caller by ensuring you have total control over when, how or if your supporter sends help.
Some folks want their supporter to call 911 after 1 minute of unresponsiveness, while others opt to provide a personal emergency contact (think roommate, friend, neighbour), leaving emergency services out of it. Others still might want something else entirely. While no two callers are the same, one thing you can always count on is that when you call BeSafe, you are in control of what happens.
