On May 16, 2019 the 6 month evaluation of London’s Temporary Overdose Prevention site (now called Consumption and Treatment Service) was released to the public. The results show a reduction in harms associated with drug use, including opioid-related overdoses. This safe, clean and secure place for those who use drugs, provides a caring, stigma-free service delivery that facilitates a foundation of trust - critical for safer drug use and positive connections to health and social services for the clients.
