It has had success in some cities in the US and there is reasonable logic behind it. It also keeps these people within "the system" and increases the likelihood of getting them off it in a controlled manner.
The Daily Mail won't like it I'm sure.

But, I agree (I do think this will get some right stick though so best avoided from now on)

Anything worth a try as the "war" is not being won. I hope it is successful.

If you see the movie 'Trainspotting' the scene where Renton goes 'cold turkey'complete with hallucinations, nightmares and deep sweats is the most graphic and accurate account of just stopping. He had OD'd. His parents decided to lock him in a room.


Many town provide free meths to give smackheeds a bit of support but whether controlled or gradual withdrawal, many will never kick the habit.

Stockton is a visual tragedy these days.

Isnít distributing class A drugs illegal?

I do think itís worth a try by the way.

There were so many smackheads in boro town centre this afternoon theyíre going to have to team up with the Columbians to supply all of them though.

Give them more than two doses. Keep them off the streets day and night.

I can understand the logic by giving heroin rather than methadone (which doesnt seem to work) will cut petty crime such as shoplifting burgelry etc.
However imo it makes a mockery of the anti drug laws
All kind of drugs are freely available so rolling this out nationwide would be a concern for me as i dont condone addiction and this could prevent people from getting help they need
So the current drugs policy is not working.
Im not saying we should go the way of Portugal but surely if heroin addicts can have their fix then surely all class A class B drugs should be regulated rather than illegal?

Gazzete report middlesbrough the first uk town to do this, wrong. Over 10 years ago darlington and maudsley hospital London ran clinics as part of the UK pilot. It was aimed at treatment resistant people with aim to reduce injecting related injury, hiv, hep b and hep c transmission, crime reduction and allow stability in user groups which were a small cohort of around 10.What became apparent was the money saved by not buying heroin was used for alcohol and diazepam which caused a whole lot different problems
. When the funding ended it was taken up by pct up around Seaham.

This is a step in the right direction for treating drug addiction as the health problem it is - similar systems have been used around the world for years and they have proven to be cheaper, reduce crime, reduce deaths and increase the chances of long-term recovery.

It isn't just giving drug addicts free drugs. It's providing a safe place for them to use while undergoing treatment. 'Cold turkey' doesn't work for drugs like heroin. It costs far more to lock drug addicts up and treat them as criminals than it is does to support and help them, treating them as patients.

"What became apparent was the money saved by not buying heroin was used for alcohol and diazepam which caused a whole lot different problems"

That seems different to every other trial carried out, where there have been significant reductions in drug use, crime and drug-related deaths. Any links as this seems to be an outlier?
