Drug Abuse & the Harm Reduction Program
|To protect, promote and improve the health of our community|
The Madison County Health Department operates a Syringe Services Program (SSP) 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.

Come to any of our Harm Reduction locations or watch for our van! We have free naloxone and training. You do NOT have to be a Harm Reduction client to get free naloxone.
There's now a statewide website available that includes a searchable registry allowing consumers to locate pharmacies that carry naloxone by city, county or zip code. It also contains information on how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose and other valuable resources.
The Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy, in conjunction with the Kentucky Board of Pharmacy, the Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy and the Advancing Pharmacy Practice in Kentucky Coalition has published this online registry at KyStopOverdoses.ky.gov.
