Sana Needle Exchange
The Sana Needle Exchange aims to protect public safety and community health by reducing the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C due to injection drug use. The Program works to keep people who inject drugs, their partners, and their children free from HIV, so that they do not have the added burden of living with HIV while in their addiction or recovery of drug use.
The mission of HIV Alliance’s Needle Exchange is to:
- Stop the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C
- Increase access to health care, drug treatment and detox for people who inject drugs (PWID)
- Decrease the prevalence of HIV in syringes that may be discarded in our community
Our Approach to Treatment
We look to support the health of people who inject drugs, as well as their families and sexual partners. Many find that quitting drugs improves their lives, BUT, this does not work for everyone, and it is an individual decision. We do not push people to get into treatment. We help those who choose to do so by giving referrals, advocacy, and counseling on the issue. All services are confidential.
