According to clients of this Danish drug consumption room, access to a safe injecting facility reduced their public injecting and unsafe syringe disposal.

Key points From summary and commentary
• Clients using a Danish safe injecting facility were invited to participate in a study about their injecting behaviours and practices.
• Most reported less rushed/stressful injections, less public injecting outdoors and no longer sharing needles after the facility opened.
• As a public health intervention, the facility successfully reached people engaging in high-risk behaviours
