    Projecting 1,250 overdose deaths for the year, the city considers safe-injection sites | Mike Newall
    When a young woman overdosed in front of me under the Lehigh Street bridge last month, I did what the outreach workers in the neighborhood had taught me to do: I gave her Narcan from one of the packs that they've been blanketing Kensington with for months. The first dose wasn't enough.
