Syringe Service Programs (SSP)

Syringe Service Programs save lives graphicSSPs can also be known as Syringe Exchange Programs (SEP), Syringe Access Programs (SAP), and Needle Exchange Programs (NEP). They are a key component in a comprehensive harm reduction strategy.

These programs have been proven to reduce the harms of substance use to the individual and to the community. SSPs reconnect marginalized community members to their community and empower people to make positive changes in their lives. Syringe service programs focus on building relationships and provide people access to other vital services.
