research summary paper on safe injection sites
You are a psychologist studying different methods of reducing opioid-related deaths. As part of your research, you are looking at the use of safe injection sites as a means of reducing drug overdoses. You have found three articles that look at safe injection sites (NOTE: These three sources are NOT in correct APA format—some are lacking important info that you will need to fix on your References page):
