Supervised consumption sites (SCS) are an essential part of an evidence-based treatment approach that saves lives. The services they offer not only ensure the health and safety of at-risk communities, but also connects them to social supports and vital ancillary services. Extensive research has validated their positive impact, including in the following ways:
- Reduced HIV risk behavior
- Increased use of addiction services
- Improvement of public order
- Reduced risk of overdose
- Safety for women who use substances
- No increase in drug use or crime
