Syringe Access Program

Volunteers of America Mid-States in collaboration with the Louisville Metro Public Health Department is able to offer syringe exchange services to our community. Syringe exchange services are provided in different areas within the Jefferson County area to ensure their availability to the individuals that need them most.

The overall goal of the initiative is to reduce harm within individuals, their loved ones, and the community as a whole. Harm reduction is defined as is a set of practical strategies and ideas aimed at reducing negative consequences associated with drug use.
