Today, Paris city hall announces the first assessment of the fix room of Paris. Indeed, this room  opened on October 17, 2016 in Lariboisière hospital, in the 10th district of Paris. Its aim is to fight against mortality by overdose. 

These safer injection facilities are very frequented in Paris. In fact, 110 to 120 users visit the facility every day. The number has considerably increased since the opening, as in October only forty people took advantage of it.

6 out of 10 users are “injectors”. That is to say, they bring the drug as Subutex or Skenan and inject themselves the product under supervision of a nurse. This procedure is carried out with a clean syringe to avoid infection risks.

This intensive frequentation demonstrates the users wish to be treated. Furthermore, we note an improvement with reference to the security. According to Paris city hall, there has not been any degradation nor agression.
