In the Eye of the Needle: Diary of a Medically Supervised Injecting Centre

Ingrid van Beek
Allan Clear

However they are labeled, there are a couple of dozen safe injection facilities, safe injection rooms, safe injection spaces, drug consumption rooms, or medically supervised injecting centres around the globe. The most recent have appeared in Vancouver, Canada, and the most scrutinized is in Sydney, Australia. Dr. Ingrid Van Beek has diarized the early history of Sydney's centre in her book, "In the Eye of the Needle". This book is much more than the story of the medically supervised injection center.
