By May 2020, we saw a 45% increase in overdose in South Carolina, compared to the previous year. Our nonprofit driven, "Naloxone Found Here" program makes this life saving medication available to decrease the number of overdose deaths and increase access to SC harm reduction. If you or your business would like to have naloxone in case of emergency, please send us an email to email@example.com.
Over 14,000 doses of naloxone given
360 lives saved
75,000 used syringes properly disposed
Nonprofit, Challenges Inc and Carolina Wellness and Recovery of Powdersville offer syringe exchange, Opioid Agonist Therapy (OAT) for opioid use disorder, and recovery support services under one roof. With our office location just outside of Greenville, we can now assist those in Easley, Anderson and Spartanburg areas. We provide mobile SC harm reduction in other parts of the state as well. Visit our Locations page to learn more about South Carolina syringe exchange. At Challenges Inc., our mission is to reduce the damage caused by punitive drug laws so that people who use drugs can live free of harm in our community.
Your support enables us to continue carrying out this life saving work.
Studies show that participants of a program like ours are 5x more likely to enter into treatment than those who are not. These prevention services also decrease the spread of diseases like HIV and Hep C by up to 80%. The use of naloxone, Suboxone, and syringe access are all evidence based practices preferred and recommended by the CDC and SAMHSA.
