Safer practices create a safer world for all.
Amador’s harm reduction resources form a safe and accepting environment for drug users to feel open to discuss their dependence without fear of judgment or condemnation. Rather than push drug users to feel ashamed of their addiction, we encourage drug users to take steps to practice safer drug use, and eventually, recognize the strength they possess to start recovery.
Amador’s harm reduction resources include safe syringe exchange, Narcan training and distribution, HIV/Hep C testing, and acudetox (ear acupuncture). These resources, with highly trained staff, ensure that your drug use is less dangerous without necessitating the complete abstinence of substances. When you are ready, referrals to our medication assisted treatment (MAT) may be done.
Finding safe, free, and accepting resources for drug use and recovery is possible with Amador Health Center.CONTACT US
