Syringe Service Program

Everyone deserves access to life saving harm-reduction care.

Harm reduction is a public health strategy that aims to reduce the harms associated with  substance use. The harm reduction approach supports the idea that those with substance  use disorders should be treated with dignity and respect and have a wide selection of  treatment options to make an informed decision about their individual needs. Because  sharing needles, syringes, or other drug injection equipment puts people who inject drugs  (PWID) at a higher risk for HIV, harm reduction strategies (like the provision of sterile syringes) can effectively prevent the transmission of bloodborne infections. 

We provide a wide array of services to people who want to reduce drug-related harm in their lives and in their communities. Questions? Call 612.822.7946  or email [email protected] for more information.

  • Injecting Equipment

  • Overdose Training
