BOOM! Health Harm Reduction Center

(BOOM! Health)

We are a harm reduction organization dedicated to creating a seamless continuum of prevention and care by integrating health, legal, and social services. On August 14th 2013, the Boards of Directors of CitiWide Harm Reduction and Bronx AIDS Services unanimously voted to create a newly merged and rebranded Bronx-based organization, BOOM!Health, that now delivers a full range of prevention, syringe access, health coordination, behavioral health, housing, legal, advocacy and wellness services to over 8,000 of the hardest to reach communities in the Bronx, New York. BOOM!Health strengthens efforts to remove barriers to accessing medical care, with particular emphasis on HIV and viral hepatitis prevention and care services. BOOM!Health enables New Yorkers living with and at highest risk for illness, addiction, homelessness and poverty to realize their full potential by integrating services to create a seamless continuum of prevention and care. Access to sterile syringes has been proven to reduce the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C. In the BOOM!Health SEP program, individuals can anonymously exchange used syringes for unused sterile syringes. Individuals are screened and must meet program eligibility criteria in order to participate in the program. SEP services are available to injection drug users in the drop in center and through mobile distribution units. The SEP team also provides community clean up and safe syringe disposal services. Expanded Syringe Access Program (ESAP) The BOOM!Health ESAP Distributes sterile syringes to injection drug users through community outreach and promotes ESAP to local health care facilities and pharmacies. Peer-Delivered Syringe Exchange Peer-Delivered Syringe Exchange program provides access to sterile syringes at no cost to injection drug users who do not have access to a nearby Syringe Exchange Program. Single Residence Occupancy (SRO) Health Outreach The BOOM!Health SRO Health Outreach team confronts homelessness and HIV/AIDS with critical home-delivered harm reduction services to homeless people living with HIV/AIDS who have been placed in SRO hotels for emergency shelter. Services include outreach, condoms and prevention materials, hygiene kits, education, counseling and medical triage.
