Out of needles? Get a fresh supply for free!

Whether you’re injecting hormones, insulin, or other substances, you can protect yourself from HIV, Hepatitis C (HCV), and bacterial infections by using a new needle every time. You can drop off your old needles and access a fresh supply for free through the Syringe Service Program.

The Syringe Service Program also offers Naloxone for overdose prevention and safer substance use kits for smoking, snorting, and injection.

To access the Syringe Service Program, simply visit one of the locations below and let the front desk know what you need. A staff person will assist you in gathering your items. You will not need to register in the EMR, and you do not need your ID or insurance card.
