Bringing Overdose Prevention Centers to New Jersey


Last week, Drug Policy Alliance (DPA) co-organized a forum with The College of New Jersey featuring an expert panel of public health officials, researchers, legal experts, and community leaders on innovations in overdose prevention. 

Drug overdose is now the leading cause of accidental death nationally and in New Jersey, with more than 3,000 New Jersey residents dying from overdose each year. DPA is launching a campaign to establish overdose prevention centers (also known as supervised consumption spaces) in response to the devastating loss of life.

Overdose prevention centers are locations where people can legally consume previously purchased drugs under the supervision of trained staff. The staff are able to provide immediate assistance in the case of an overdose and connect people to drug treatment, medical care, social services and harm reduction services.

Watch experts at the forum talk about how overdose prevention centers can save lives.
