Because we have been collecting data on people who are surviving overdoses, the picture that we're seeing of those who have survived overdoses is different, at least in some parts of the province. As well, we're seeing geographic differences. In some parts of the province, it's more equally weighted between boys and girls, men and women, and those who survive overdoses are more often not the long-time users, but people who are more recreational users and often in private homes rather than in public places. There is a difference, and that's why this data is so helpful for us in looking at points where we can intervene to prevent ongoing drug use by people.
