Mayor of Ithaca Wants a Heroin Injection Management Facility, Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston Responds
(EMAILWIRE.COM, March 08, 2016 ) Boston, MA -- According to the Boston Globe, Ithaca mayor Svante Myrick wants his city to be the first in the country to offer medical supervision of heroin users looking to get high. His proposal states that such a facility would also provide resources for rehabilitation and recovery, but primary purpose would be to intervene in case of overdosage.
Such injection rooms already exist in some European countries, Canada, and Australia, however U.S. law and political challenges make such creating such a site difficult and
Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston commends Mayor Myrick's bold initiative in addressing the epidemic of substance abuse in New York and across the country. As a facility providing Heroin rehab in Boston to citizen from across the country, Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston understands the potential benefits of opening a medical center such as the one Mayor Myrick is suggesting. Due to its powerful nature and highly addictive chemical make-up, heroin often clouds one's judgement, which can lead to dangerous situations; a medically monitored injection site can lower those risks.
A representative of Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston comments,
"Opposition to Mayor Myrick's proposal stems from a misunderstanding of both addiction and the people who live with it each day. This facility is not about enabling substance abuse, but rather offering a safe alternative. Because we administer heroin rehab in Boston, we understand the unfortunate reality is we cannot force rehabilitation on anyone; providing a secure place, staffed by nurses, and with resources for recovery services is a thousand times better than simply allowing people under the influence of heroin abuse to continue putting themselves in danger on the streets by sharing needles or miscalculating dosages.
It may not be an ideal solution, but it is an improvement on what is already a dire situation. We believe that the success of these injection rooms in other countries is more than enough reason to at least try it here in the United States."
