Harm Reduction Outreach &
Drop-in Programs

Harm reduction provides people with information about different activities that are often associated with harm in order to make the most informed decisions they can.Ā This includes choices about drug use, sexual activity, and self-harm. In addition to information and referrals, we provide harm reduction kits for safer drug use, sexual health materials such as condoms and lube, as well as naloxone kits and training.
