It has come to this! –
February 6, 2020 – HealthRight 360, one of the largest San Francisco drug treatment providers, will run it.
A driver with a van will be posted outside the center to pick up people showing signs of methamphetamine-induced psychosis.
Officials said the center may eventually accept patients from hospital emergency rooms, but will begin by accepting people only from the streets. San Francisco is also among several cities in the country considering opening supervised injection sites to address drug addiction.
Advocates say injection sites have been successful in Canada, Europe and elsewhere and that when combined with on-site recovery resources, they can help prevent overdoses and help users.
But injection sites are illegal under U.S. federal law.
