Safe injection sites in Ottawa: a drug-rehab program perspective
Ottawa's drug addicts should have access to a safe drug injection site -- at least, that's what two Toronto researchers concluded in a study released this morning. The study was commissioned by the Toronto Drug Strategy, which is part of Toronto Public Health. It recommended that Ottawa get twosuch facilities, and Toronto get three.
For reaction, we called up someone who works closely with drug addicts in Ottawa. Denis Boileau is the executive director of Maison Fraternité, a drug rehab facility in Vanier.
