Breakthrough: Glasgow approves UK’s first safer drug consumption room

Great news for Glasgow as authorities have given the green light to the UK’s first pilot safer drug consumption room (DCR). This milestone comes after years of advocacy from reformist Peter Krykant, who once battled addiction himself. DCRs offer sterile equipment, a secure space for users, and trained medical staff to prevent overdoses.

Despite some concerns, evidence from other countries supports their effectiveness. With a fresh look at drug laws and growing public support, Scotland is on the path to saving lives. Krykant, now leading a charity’s campaign, aims to see similar facilities across the UK and drug checking services expanded to protect users from potentially lethal substances.
