The conditions for drug-related harms and benefits are shaped by structural, material, and social aspects of the spaces and places in which drugs are consumed. It is not possible to offer supervised consumption services everywhere, and where supervised consumption services are available, they will not be used by most people who inject drugs. Existing spaces of drug consumption, such as private residences, public washrooms, and other public and private spaces will always be used for drug consumption, and public health should promote conditions that enhance safety in all spaces that may be used for drug consumption.
