Syringe Exchange and Drug User Health
Syringe Exchange Programs (SEP) are leading drug user health efforts across New York State. In addition to syringe exchange and naloxone distribution, SEPs provide drug treatment referrals, HIV/HCV testing, recovery readiness counseling, and some even provide on-site buprenorphine. Contact the SEP closest to you to learn more about their program.
If you are a person who injects drugs and would prefer to purchase syringes at a pharmacy, there is a helpful directory of Expanded Syringe Access Program (ESAP) participating pharmacies at ThePoint.org
