  1. Program Information
  2. What is Harm Reduction?
  3. Street Outreach Team

Our Syringe Access Services Program was created using a Harm Reduction approach to help people who inject drugs manage their health and prevent overdose, while stopping the transmission of HIV and Hepatitis C. 

We do this by providing people with a safe, legal, non-judgmental place to get free injection supplies and to safely dispose of used syringes. Our staff will educate and refer those in need to a variety of community and health services. We also dispense Naloxone and provide training on how to use it to prevent an opioid overdose.
