It’s heartbreaking but enabling their drug habit is not the answer. In the Midwest they found that Fentanyl use increased when addicts knew they’d be saved from ODing. The numbers decreased once a three strikes rule made it so that they would not get Narcan if they went over that. The authorities have to get all of these people off the streets and into locked treatment facilities. There they’ll have access to all of the services they need and will be kept away from the drugs that are killing them! Once clean many can be reintegrated into society, the rest can go to LT care facilities like group homes.
