  1. Evaluating needle exchange : are there negative effects ?

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    We analyzed data on all drug-treatment admissions in San Francisco County over a 4-year period (n=35 460) to evaluate the potential negative effects of the San Francisco needle-exchange program.

    Methods

    Admissions in the 2 years preceding implementation of the exchange program (1987-1988) were compared with admissions in the 2 years following implementation (1989-1990).

    Results

    No negative consequences of needle exchange were detected.
