By May 2020, we saw a 45% increase in overdose in SC compared to the previous year. We have decided to start our "Naloxone Found Here" program to spread access to this life saving medication. If you or your business would like to have naloxone in case of emergency, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over 8,000 doses of naloxone given
249 deaths prevented
$9,250 in treatment scholarships
33,525 used syringes properly disposed
Challenges Inc and Carolina Wellness and Recovery of Powdersville offer syringe exchange, Suboxone, Naloxone, and recovery support services under one roof. With our office location outside of Greenville, we can now assist those in Easley, Anderson and Spartanburg areas. We promote multiple pathways from drug use to harm reduction to recovery, and we are committed to resolving barriers, making it easier to get help and expand access to care. At Challenges Inc., our mission is to reduce the damage caused by drugs and the laws around them to people who use them, and the communities we live in. All of our harm reduction services are FREE and require NO personal information.
In places like Greenville, Easley, and Spartanburg we have found 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 by the CDC and SAMHSA.
