SYRINGE services program
 
 

It is estimated that a person who injects drugs, injects about 1,000 times a year. This adds up to millions of injections in our community, creating an enormous need for reliable sources of sterile syringes. The Syringe Services Program (SSP) provides a way for people who inject drugs (PWID) who continue to inject to safely dispose of used syringes and to obtain sterile syringes at no cost. The SSP provides a range of related prevention and care services that are vital to helping PWID reduce their risks of acquiring and transmitting bloodborne infections, as well as maintain and improve their overall health. 

Other Services

  • Condom distribution to prevent sexual transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).
  • Referrals to substance use treatment and other medical and social services.
  • Overdose education and naloxone administration training. Injectable (vial and syringes) naloxone is provided.
  • HIV testing, Hepatitis C testing and care navigation services.
