32. Drug Consumption Rooms with Peter Krykant
Peter Krykant previously used intravenous drugs whilst living homeless in Birmingham. His lived experience has shown him the benefits of drug consumption rooms; to prevent the spread of bloodborne diseases and protect people who use drugs from accidental overdose.

This intervention offers a unique insight to gather observational data on UK intravenous drug use. It could be the stepping stone needed to tackle the increasing number of UK drug-related deaths. https://twitter.com/PeterKrykant (Peter Krykant twitter) https://www.birmingham.gov.uk/info/20006/housing/1499/rough_sleeping (Birmingham rough sleepers’ team) https://drugscience.org.uk/drug-information/methadone/ (Methadone ) https://drugscience.org.uk/drug-information/benzodiazepines/ (Diazepam ) https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/news/politics/scottish-politics/1160888/analysis-after-two-days-of-drugs-death-conferences-in-glasgow-are-we-any-closer-to-finding-solutions/ (Drug Death summit 27th Feb Scotland 2020 ) https://www.theguardian.com/world/commentisfree/2018/nov/21/fixing-rooms-saving-lives-drug-addicts (Copenhagen Drug Consumption Room) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naloxone (Naloxone ) https://www.gofundme.com/f/overdose-prevention-glasgow (CrowdFunder page ) https://twitter.com/PaulJSweeney/status/1314526053310889984?s=20 (Site 2 – Gazebo ) https://www.scotland.police.uk/about-us/police-scotland/executive-team/chief-constable/ (Scotland's Lord Advocate and the Chief Constable of Police Scotland) http://www.sdf.org.uk/heroin-assisted-treatment-provided-glasgow/ (Heroin assisted-treatment) https://www.recovery.org.uk/methadone-addiction/methadone-addiction-treatment/ (Methadone programmes) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronnie_Cowan_(politician) (Ronnie Cowan) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alison_Thewliss (Alison Thewliss) https://www.changegrowlive.org/ (ChangeGrowLive) https://www.safeconsumptionglasgow.com/ (Safe Consumption Glasgow) Become a Drug Science Community Member: https://www.donate.drugscience.org.uk/ (https://www.donate.drugscience.org.uk/) Twitter: https://twitter.com/ProfDavidNutt (@ProfDavidNutt) https://twitter.com/Drug_Science (@Drug_Science) A https://fascinateproductions.co.uk/ (Fascinate Productions) podcast for Drug Science
