Challenges INC. - Harm Reduction Services

Challenges Inc and Carolina Wellness and Recovery now offer Suboxone, Naloxone, and Syringe Services under one roof. With two offices on either side of Greenville, we can now assist those in Easley and Spartanburg as well. We are a "bridge" from addiction to recovery, by using donated funds to scholarship treatment costs, making it easier to get help and expand access to care. At Challenges Inc., our mission is to reduce the damage caused by drugs on users and the community alike. All of our risk reduction services are FREE and CONFIDENTIAL and require NO personal information.

Things We Do // Things We Don't

  1. We DO NOT promote drug use.
  2. We DO NOT encourage drug use.
  3. We DO stop the spread of disease.
  4. We DO save lives from overdose. 
  5. We DO help lower the cost of healthcare. 

How Does It Work?

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 services can 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.
