Harm Reduction Services

As the Substance Use Disorder crisis continues to plague our community, protecting the lives of those actively using drugs is critical until they are ready to begin a recovery plan. Harm reduction is an approach that emphasizes engaging directly with people who use drugs to prevent overdose and infectious disease transmission, and improve their physical, mental, and social wellbeing.

Harm reduction services include providing:

  • Naloxone, a medication that can reverse an opioid overdose and is easy to administer
  • Hepatitis and HIV at-home testing kits
  • Wound care supplies
  • Fentanyl test strips
  • Safer sex supplies
  • Relationship building and support
  • Resource connections

Evidence shows that having harm reduction services available contributes to safer communities.
