The Clallam County Health and Human Services Syringe Service Program has two main functions:
- We offer a Syringe Exchange Program to intravenous drug users. We operate a 1 to 1 exchange. For each used syringe brought in a sterile syringe will be given. The syringe Exchange gives us an opportunity to provide public health interventions to the drug users and offer additional services. The clients can get sterile syringes to prevent the transmission of bloodborne diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis. We assist with immunizations, medical referrals, HIV/Hepatitis testing, Naloxone and Case Management services for drug treatment. The Syringe Exchange operates one day per week on Tuesday from 12:30pm to 3:00pm.
- We assist with syringe disposal education. Read the Brochure called “Get the Point” about how to dispose of sharps used in a home setting for medical conditions or syringes found in public settings.
