Addressing Intersecting Housing and Overdose Crises in Vancouver, Canada: Opportunities and Challenges from a Tenant-Led Overdose Response Intervention in Single Room Occupancy Hotels

This journal examines the acceptability, feasibility, and implementation of the Tenant Overdose Response Organizers program (TORO)--a tenant-led naloxone training and distribution intervention.

The project was implemented in privately owned single room occupancy (SRO) hotels that were disproportionately affected by overdose in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside neighborhood. 

Findings suggest that the TORO program was affected by social, structural, and physical environmental constraints that impacted program feasibility and implementation.
