Safe consumption spaces (SCS) are a reality-based and evidence proven strategy to addressing local drug epidemics. SCS can make drug users lives better by increasing their health and increase public safety and public health for entire communities.
Safe consumption spaces reduce overdose deaths, decrease outdoor and public drug use, and prevent the spread of diseases such as HIV & HEP C. They increase referrals to treatment programs and save taxpayers money. It’s a win-win for the entire community.
