Fentanyl is a symptom not the crisis


Workers have told us they are not hopeful that the spike in overdoses will go down anytime soon especially if the only substantial plan is to increase access to Naloxone, and step up enforcement.

Poverty, homelessness, and lack of adequate mental health supports are responsible for the addiction crisis. We need to address the root cause of addiction and poverty. That means increased access to safe injection sites, reducing stigma related to using drugs, funding for supportive housing, and good paying stable jobs for people so that they don't end up living on the street.
