Colorado Point of View: Overdose prevention center bill creates controversy

1 min read


DENVER (KDVR) — A bill allowing overdose prevention centers has moved forward at the Capitol but it would still need Gov. Jared Polis’ signature and not all lawmakers are on board with the proposal.

“Colorado Point of View” host Matt Mauro spoke with Breeah Kinsella, who is part of the Colorado Provider’s Association, a group that represents recovery service providers, and state representative Gabe Evans on their views of the overdose prevention centers.

“I, personally, and us as a membership, we believe that because overdose prevention centers are an evidence-based strategy in addressing substance abuse disorder and overdose, that’s why we support prevention centers as a whole,” Kinsella said.
