Harm Reduction/Syringe Exchange Program

Richmond: Tuesdays, 3-7PM, 214 Boggs Lane
Berea: Thursdays, 1-5PM, 1001 Ace Drive (off of Rash Road)

The Madison County Health Department operates a Syringe Exchange Program (SEP) to reduce the spread of blood borne diseases such as Hepatitis C and HIV among people who inject drugs (PWID) by providing a scientifically proven public health service that adopts and utilizes the best practices established for harm reduction in this population.

Services at the SEP include:

  • Clean injection equipment.
  • Hepatitis C and HIV testing available at MCHD clinic locations.
  • Hepatitis A vaccination is available at the SEP site. 
  • Proper syringe disposal, including the expectation that participants will return used needles to the SEP for proper disposal.  
  • A strict one-for-one exchange model will be employed that provides SEP participants with the same number of sterile syringes that the participant brings in for disposal. For example, if the participant disposes of 14 used syringes at the MCHRSEP, then she/he receives 14 new, sterile syringes in return.
  • Referrals for those who request health services or treatment services.
  • Free Narcan with training.
