A Community Presence
Contact: Nelson Gonzalez email@example.com Ext. 150
Our Outreach Program provides syringes, alcohol pads, and other supplies to people who inject drugs and are at risk for various infections including HIV and Hep C. We also provide the anti-overdose medication Naloxone to people at risk, community members, and organizations along with training on how to use it. To help prevent overdoses, we provide test strips so people who inject drugs can test for the presence of fentanyl before they use.
We help individuals seeking MAT (Medication Assisted Treatment) detoxification and rehabilitation, connecting with them both in the streets as well as at our facility. Another service we offer is the pickup and disposal of syringes in the parks, surrounding streets, and public housing buildings around the South Bronx.
What To Expect
We offer you free, non-judgmental access to information and materials that will help preserve your health and well-being. If you require a service that we cannot provide, we will help direct you as to where to find it.
