Syringe Outreach Response Team


Taking Harm Reduction to the Streets

Contact: Van Asher  Ext. 150

SORT stands for Syringe Outreach Response Team, and is dedicated to cleaning up and safely disposing of used syringes in the South Bronx. They are available to spread information about health and harm reduction resources, including educating community residents about park syringe disposal kiosks. They also distribute fit-packs for personal syringe disposal, and distribute the life-saving medication Naloxone (also known as Narcan) that is used to reverse opiate overdoses.
