  7. “The place where two discriminations exist is a dangerous place to live.”- Richard (Anguksuar) LaFortune Using Public Health Programming to Mitigate Disease and Death from Opiate Drug Use Sarah Gordon, MPH, NREMT-B

  8. The issue is not simple…. disease, heroin, death, stigma, addiction, war on drugs, healthcare access, harm reduction Injection drug use is a well-known route of transmission of blood borne infections, particularly HIV and hepatitis B and C. Use of illicit drugs is associated with increased rates of TB and STDs. Recommended approaches, immunizations and screening, can protect the health of a person who uses drugs through medical interventions, while evidence-based behavioral interventions help prevent sexual and injection transmission by addressing risky behaviors.

  11. Twin Cities has the cheapest and strongest heroin in the country, officials say By Aaron Rupar Thu., Jun. 6 2013 at 1:04 PM At the newser, a doctor said there were four heroin-related deaths reported in Hennepin County in 2008. Last year, that number shot up to 37, and Hennepin County Sheriff Rich Stanek said the county is on pace to set a new record this year.Stanek also said the heroin he's seeing these days in Hennepin County is the cheapest and strongest in the country, a combination he characterized as particularly deadly.His comments reiterated what law enforcement officials said at a similar news conference last year. Then, they referenced an analysis showing that some heroin found on Twin Cities' streets was up to 93 percent pure, whereas typical American street heroin has a purity of about 35 percent. "A heroin user in the Twin Cities has a greater chance of accidental overdose because the purity of that heroin is so high," Stanek said during that news conference.At today's newser, officials pointed out the role prescription drugs play as a gateway to heroin. According to the Star Tribune, data showed that heroin and prescription drug abuse in the Twin Cities reached an all-time high last year. The two accounted for 21 percent of all addiction treatments in the state, with only alcohol abuse accounting for a higher share.
