Services in the Platzspitz especially sought to address the high rate of overdose death and other adverse consequences of concentrated drug use, including HIV
While the “needle park” did enable some level of geographical containment of drug injection and facilitated targeted health services, neighboring residents and some local officials grew impatient with the spillover effects of crime, desperately ill persons in the streets, and the deaths that persisted in spite of the health outreach
HIV and AIDS-related deaths were the specters that most haunted public health authorities facing down the drug scene
Deaths from AIDS among people who used illicit drugs and other mortality among drug users (from overdose and other causes) dropped precipitously from the early 1990s. The policy seemed to be paying off
Switzerland makes more arrests (per capita) for simple possession of cannabis than even the United States; comparative figures for a number of countries are provided in Figure S2. However at the other end of the criminal justice system, small numbers are sentenced to incarceration; out of roughly 40,000 persons arrested each year for drug violations, fewer than 2,000 receive terms of incarceration. Moreover the total number of convictions and incarcerations for drug offenses has hardly changed over the period 1990-2006, Fewer than one quarter of those sentenced receive terms as long as eighteen months. The majority of arrests are for possession of cannabis and result in fines of 250-300 CHF; these are not even recorded as convictions.
You are incorrect.
1 in 4 people become addicted to heroin after just a single use.
You are confusing dependency, which is a physical requirement, and addiction, a mental requirement.
Why are you people confusing Stimulants with Opiates?
the method of in-taking heroin can greatly increase chances of immediate addiction.
Substance dependence also known as drug dependence is an adaptive state that develops from repeated drug administration, and which results in withdrawal upon cessation of drug use. . A drug addiction, a distinct concept from substance dependence, is defined as compulsive, out-of-control drug use, despite negative consequences. An addictive drug is a drug which is both rewarding and reinforcing.
Addiction is a medical condition that is characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli, despite adverse consequences.
It is estimated that about 23 percent of individuals who try heroin become dependent on it.
After an intravenous injection of heroin, users report feeling a surge of euphoria (“rush”) accompanied by dry mouth, a warm flushing of the skin, heaviness of the extremities, and clouded mental functioning. Following this initial euphoria, the user goes “on the nod,” an alternately wakeful and drowsy state. Users who do not inject the drug may not experience the initial rush, but other effects are the same.edit on 19-4-2016 by raymundoko because: (no reason given)
Fact Six: Addiction is not caused primarily by the drug you take; it's caused by distress.
