Summit Safe Syringe Exchange

Summit Safe is a harm reduction program offered to the community since June 2016. The program allows clients to remain anonymous while receiving sterile syringes and supplies, have access to HIV/HEP C testing, naloxone, and referral to treatment (if requested). Clinics are held weekly and program staff encourages participants to bring used syringes so they can be disposed of properly.
