People who come there [to overdose prevention sites] have safe needles, clean supplies, a safe place to be and are with people who care about them. If someone experiences a fatal dosage or concoction, there will be people there to treat them and keep them from dying. At that moment when someone says, I don’t want to do this anymore, there will be someone there to lead them into the options for recovery. In fact, that is a thing that we know in the places where overdose [prevention] sites have been implemented, they have become among the most successful modalities to lead people with substance use disorder to treatment. The effectiveness of these sites is not a question.
