The Needle Exchange
The Needle Exchange provides clean needles and a safe disposal location for used needles. Education on safer practices and keeping used needles out of the community is an important function of our Needle Exchange program.
Our program is anonymous and confidential. Our Needle Exchangers are set up with an ID (consisting of their first, middle, and last initial, month and year of birth) which helps us to keep track of the needles exchanged and stats.
The number of needles brought in can be exchanged back, but we can also give a 10 pack a day if needles are needed.
We also offer a range of drug supplies such as sterile water and cookers to help reduce the transmission of HIV and HCV.
