Rehab is now synonymous with getting a fix. Typically, rehabilitation involves long, tedious meetings that are centered around breaking an individual’s dependence on a substance, that being either drug or alcohol. Vancouver, however, is taking an entirely different approach with the heroin addicts calling their city home. Instead of forcing the abusers to sit through informational lectures on the effects of their drug abuse, they are simply handing out set dosages of the drug itself. This is being done in an attempt to curb drug violence in the streets, following the idea that supplying the addicts with the dope will prevent them from being involved in drug-related crimes or other violent activities. The practice is fresh, and if given time to expand and adapt could result in a much more positive relationship between a city and its drugs.
