Syringe Services Programs & Harm Reduction

Harm reduction programs help people who use drugs protect themselves from injury and infections and provide essential safety net services. Recent increases in hepatitis C infection and the rise of fentanyl have made harm reduction efforts such as syringe services programs (SSPs), pharmacy sale of syringes, and naloxone distribution programs even more critical to protect public health. 

See the Directory of California SSPs for a provider near you.
