In 2017, Michigan had a record number of opiate-related deaths. Out of 2700 overdose deaths, 2000 were caused by opiates. Wayne County came in at number one with the highest number, almost double the next county on the list. The dangers and effects on the community from I.V drug use are numerous: overdose, unsafe injection practices, spread of bloodborne infections (HIV, Hep C, Staph, ETC), improper disposal of used needles and more. The fight against the war on drugs is far from over, but the use of Safe Injection Sites/Harm Reduction is a step in the right direction. Providing safe, supervised areas with nurses on staff to facilitate the administering of Narcan, access to clean needles and supplies and opportunities to access resources for getting clean, healthcare and other important issues. Treating IV users as actual human beings and providing a safe haven leads to more comfortability in asking or seeking help. Please sign my petition and let the lawmakers of Michigan know that the public sees the devastation this epidemic is causing and take a step towards getting this epidemic under control.
