Points West is a harm reduction program committed to reducing the potential harms associated with drug use in a respectful, non-judgmental and compassionate environment. We are devoted to supporting people who use drugs and combating the stigma they experience.
Operating under the principles of Harm Reduction, participants in the Points West program may obtain new injection supplies as well as proper disposal of used syringes. In addition, program participants have access to:
Safer sex supplies (condoms, dental dams)
Testing and counseling for HIV and/or hepatitis C
Literature and advice about safer injection practices
Education on overdose prevention and response
Referrals to substance use and/or mental health support, primary care providers, Medicaid enrollment or navigation, and other services as requested
