Thurston County Syringe Services Program

The Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Syringe Services Program

The Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Syringe Services Program (SSP) provides a way for people who inject drugs (PWIDs) who continue to inject to safely dispose of used syringes and to obtain sterile syringes at no cost. The department SSP provides a range of related prevention and care services that are vital to helping PWIDs reduce their risks of acquiring and transmitting blood-borne infections as well as maintain and improve their overall health. The Syringe Services Program offers a 1-for-1 exchange of syringes at offsite locations in an effort to stop the spread of HIV and Hepatitis. - Condom distribution to prevent sexual transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). - Referrals to substance abuse treatment and other medical and social services. - Overdose response training and naloxone administration training. Injectable (vial and syringes) naloxone is provided. Nasal Narcan spray may be obtained at most pharmacies. - Medicaid and most commercial health insurance plans cover at least one form of Narcan. Coverage and co-pays vary widely. Best to call ahead to confirm product availability, cost and insurance coverage.
