Can I access Needle Exchange Programs if I’m not currently using drugs?
Needle Exchange Programs primarily target individuals who are actively using drugs to minimize the risk of infectious disease transmission and promote harm reduction. However, if you have a history of drug use and still possess used needles or other injecting equipment, you may be able to access these programs for safe disposal and education on preventing future harm. Additionally, if you’re concerned about a friend or family member who uses drugs, you can often access resources and support from Needle Exchange Programs to help you better understand the issues surrounding drug use and harm reduction. It’s essential to contact your local program to discuss your specific situation and determine the appropriate services for you.
