We are a coalition of Portland residents, parents, business owners, health professionals, and current and former users advocating for Safe Consumption Spaces to promote public health, community safety, and respect for the people of Portland.
Safe Consumption Spaces (SCS) have been saving lives around the world for over 30 years. There are now over 100 sites worldwide. There have been millions of injections at these sites and ZERO overdose deaths.
SCS's are safe, clean spaces where people can legally use previously obtained drugs under the supervision of healthcare professionals who provide support, safe and sterile equipment, and overdose prevention.
Safe consumption spaces provide an array of support including health care, counseling, and referrals to health and social services, including drug treatment.
