What we do
We provide free naloxone (Narcan) and training on its use to help prevent death from overdose. We provide education and access to recovery options for people currently using opioids and other drugs. We provide clean supplies and other resources so that people who use drugs may do so in a way that is safer for themselves and their communities. We participate in retrieval of used syringes. We seek to build and strengthen connections with similar public health projects and organizations.
What we believe
- Drug use is a part of our world. We seek to minimize its harmful effects rather than ignore and condemn those who use.
- People who use drugs are people. They are ourselves, our friends, our family, our loved ones, our co-workers, and our neighbors. Their lives have meaning and value. Their experiences are valid.
- Drug users themselves are the primary agents of reducing the harms of their use. We seek to empower people who use drugs to share information and support each other in strategies which meet their actual conditions of use.
