With the explosion of highly potent fentanyl and its analogues in the illicit drug supply, overdose fatalities are occurring with alarming frequency and speed, leaving little time for first responders to find and resuscitate victims. Supervised injection facilities can help combat this problem. In addition to other benefits, these facilities offer sterile equipment and a hygienic environment for medically supervised drug injection.
