There is certainly more deaths from overdosing than there ever was, deaths from o.d is at record levels.

whether there is more people using drugs or not is irrelevant when there is more people overdosing themselves to death. 

isn't, at least, part of the rise in overdoses, that heroin is being cut with fentanyl and other opioids which means the lethal dose is far less than with heroin alone.

This is a really interesting article. Lots of statistics and info about heroin-assisted treatment clinics etc.

Worth a read.

Interesting...But where's the help for those who DON'T take drugs?

 

All banging good for those that do....What about those that don't..?

Cannot believe these problems have not been sorted after seeing posts from some of Sheffield's self appointed experts.

Austerity is responsible for 130,000+ deaths, and the increase in suicides by drug overdose, most common, by paracetamol, I presume.

yeah, ok

Ultimately, we cannot say — based on the evidence in this study —  that austerity policies caused 120,000 extra deaths.

FactCheck: Did austerity kill 120,000 people?

Why do you see that as a problem?

The cost alone would make it difficult to work.

Pharmaceutically pure heroin is very cheap.  The cost of the service would be a great deal cheaper than all the expenses of the crime and policing costs associated with addicts having to fund their own addiction.

So you think all junkies want to be clean? if you do you are mistaken. Bodies will be needed for this to work, the only people to benefit from this scheme will be addicts and the bodies that run the scheme. Why is it that the heroin substitute programme hasn't worked? its free and easy to obtain. So you think that giving the real thing will make the drug dealers world collapse?
