Alberta Approves Safe Consumption Sites
Alberta has given the go ahead for safe consumption sites.
The safe injection sites will start in Edmonton and Lethbridge with the goal aimed at reducing overdoses and HIV.
In addition to safe access, options will be available to users that include counselling and drug treatment services.
Emergency room visits for heroin related issues in the province have jumped more than 10 times what they were in the past five years, according to the Canadian Institute for Health Information.
