ABC7's Injecting Hope looks at an innovative program in Canada that is saving lives by giving users a safe place to get high.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The ABC7 Originals, "Injecting Hope," is an on-the-ground, gritty exploration of the drug overdose crisis in North America and the role harm reduction efforts, like safe injection sites, could play in finding a solution.

ABC7 News reporter Tara Campbell takes viewers onto the streets of Vancouver, Canada's Downtown Eastside for an intimate look at how the first safe consumption site in North America, established more than two decades ago, is impacting drug users and the community at large.

From the alleys to the mayor's office, Tara's unique filmmaking technique, using an iPhone 13 Pro, offers a never-seen-before portrayal of the brutality of the fentanyl epidemic and amplifies the voices of those often marginalized and misunderstood.
