We provide sterile syringes to reduce transmission of blood borne diseases, such as HIV and hepatitis.
No personal identification is needed to enroll in and use these services.
Syringe exchange programs reduce disease transmission and keep communities healthier. When you come for exchange services, you will also get access to other CHASI services, including HIV testing, free condoms, and education about what treatment is available if and when you make the decision to stop using.
Sterile syringes prevent disease transmission and physical harm to people who use them to inject drugs. We have safe drop off and pick up locations in St. George and in Port Richmond.
Any syringe exchange site can also provide information about safer injections, including hormones and steroids. Have a question about harm reduction? Call us at 718-808-1824.
