In the Rainbow Group’s drug consumption rooms, drug users can use their pre-obtained drugs in a quiet and safe environment. They can exchange their used needles for new ones, preventing needle littering on the street. Moreover, each clean needle handed out to a user helps to prevent the spreading of infectious diseases, such as HIV and Hepatitis B and C.
Using in a public space is so stressful that it tends to push the user’s health concerns to the background. Using in a protected environment rather than on the street reduces the risk of overdoses or abscesses. Our consumption rooms work according to Harm Reduction principles. We offer drug users a safe, hygienic and stress-free environment. This contributes to the lives of the drug users as well as their environment.
