Safer practices create a safer world for all.

Amador’s harm reduction resources form a safe and accepting environment for people who use substances to feel open to discussing their dependence without fear of judgment or stigma. Rather than push people who use substances to feel ashamed of their addiction, we encourage them to take steps to practice safer drug use and eventually recognize the strengths and abilities they possess to start recovery, to control, reduce, or stop substance use.

Amador’s harm reduction resources include safe syringe exchange and disposal, Narcan® training and distribution, HCV testing, and Acudetox (ear acupuncture). These resources, with highly trained staff, ensure that substance use is less dangerous without necessitating the complete abstinence of substances. When ready, referrals to our medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with buprenorphine or naltrexone may be done.

Finding safe, accessible, and accepting substance use and recovery resources is possible with Amador Health Center.
