Safe Injection Facilities (3 Responses)

Thank you for your support of a safe injection facility in Massachusetts. My 30 year old son died in a detox center in May 2016. He had a very high level of Fentanyl in his toxicology report. I believe the detox took great care of him, which gives me comfort. In my support group, I hear of mistreatment/neglect of people with substance use disorder when they go to the emergency room/hospitals. I hear of people dying alone due to an overdose. I hear of people who have overdosed being abandoned by their peers due to fear of police involvement. I read about syringes being found in playgrounds and parks. SIFs will help both the people with addiction and people in the community. It is a win/win proposition and I thank you for your work on this issue. People with substance use disorder/addiction need effective treatment and based on the research, they have a better chance at SIFs.
