Supervised Injection Facility
The Merits of Supervised Injection Facilities: A case for Sudbury and Northern Ontario
March 2016 | Alex Berryman
In “The Merits of Supervised Injection Facilities: A case for Sudbury and Northern Ontario,” author Alex Berryman argues that a supervised injection facility in Sudbury and other northern communities would be effective in carrying out a number of key health care goals, improving community wellness, and reducing the incidence of incurable disease.
The author puts forth nine key community health and wellness benefits of a supervised injection facility in Sudbury, but suggests that several key considerations must first be addressed including how likely it is that individuals will use the facility, the specifications set forth by the government, the level of community support and the cost-effectiveness of a supervised injection facility.
