People who inject drugs are at risk for HIV, Hepatitis B virus (HBV) and Hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection through sharing needles and drug-preparation equipment. This is because sharing needles or works like spoons, cookers, cottons, ties, or water can transfer blood from person to person. Also, when you’re high on drugs, you’re more likely to take risks with sex, which can increase your risk for getting HIV. Services Offered - Collection and safe disposal of used needles/syringes. - Free, clean needles, injecting supplies, and condoms in a discreet paper bag. - Education on overdose prevention and response; training on how to use Naloxone (Narcan). - Explanation of the Good Samaritan Law and legal protections as a registered participant or volunteer. - Tips on safer injecting strategies, injury prevention, and drug-related illness. - Free, walk-in testing and counseling for HIV and Hepatitis C (no appointment necessary). - Appointments for Hepatitis A & B vaccination (Twinirix); screening for Hepatitis A, B, and C. - Education on sexual health and prevention of sexually transmitted infections (STIs). - Appointments for screening/treatment of STIs, as well as services for PrEP, a medicine that prevents HIV. - Appointments for testing and treatment of Tuberculosis (TB). - Linkage to other desired services within the health department.
