New York Opens First Safe Injection Sites in the US

New York City has become the first city in the U.S. to open legally sanctioned supervised injection sites for people who use drugs, as the country grapples with record overdose deaths.

On Tuesday, the city announced that two overdose prevention centers—places where people can use drugs and be provided with clean needles, drug testing services, and medical supervision—have started operating.

Our East Harlem location will be closing early at 8:30pm on Wed 5/1 and Fri 5/3. Our Washington Heights location will be open on our regular schedule.
