Drug consumption rooms (DCRs) have the potential to have a positive impact on the opioid overdose crisis. DCRs could also potentially change the political environment for public health because they can affect the distribution of responsibility for harm reduction between the individual and society by collectivizing responsibility for harm reduction through welfare regimes.
The methodology is based on 2 case studies-1 in Copenhagen, Denmark, and 1 in Paris, France-about residents, people who inject drugs (PWID), and politicians' experiences of DCRs involving semidirective interviews. Denmark has a long history of harm-reduction policy, and the implementation of DCRs in Copenhagen has happened through close collaboration between local authorities and the local community. France is far more centralized and paternalistic in terms of the distribution of authority and decision-making in welfare and drug policy.
Difficulties in cohabitation between local residents and PWID happened in both countries and can sometimes make public authorities hesitate to implement DCRs because of the NIMBY ("not in my backyard") phenomenon. However, the Danish and French case studies show that DCRs have the potential to become an instrument for civic cohabitation as well as to contribute to the destigmatization and health of PWID.
