Harm Reduction

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday – 10 AM to 4 PM
Tuesday – 11 AM to 4 PM

Naloxone (kits and training), sterile drug use equipment and condoms are always available at Street Health.

Harm Reduction are the policies, programs and practices which reduce the negative health, social and economic consequences that may result from the use of both legal and illegal drugs, without necessarily reducing drug use. The cornerstones of Harm Reduction are public health, human rights and social justice.
