Why more Philly overdose patients are refusing post-Narcan ambulance rides

150 N 6th Street

    More Philly overdose patients turning down ambulance ride after naloxone
    Needle caps mingle with gravel in the secluded alleyway behind Genevieve Geer's house in Philadelphia's Kensington neighborhood, orange plastic pebbles that speak to its popularity as a place to inject heroin. One day in August, Geer and her husband saw a man lying on the ground outside their back gate.

"People might come to Hanford, Chernobyl, and Rocky Flats for a variety of reasons: to scratch a nostalgic itch, to experience a postapocalyptic vision, or even to reclaim, and acclaim, nature. They may come away with more." In the new issue of Distillations magazine, Rebecca Boyle explores nuclear tourism.

    Greetings from Isotopia
    The tourists are almost all smiling. Some wrap arms around companions or young children; others stand tall and give a thumbs-up. Members of an orchestra pose stiffly in matching blue neckties; a dozen retirees in white socks and tennis shoes beam for the camera.
