We know; it's a little strange if you've never been to a syringe exchange before. You're thinking, "Is this for real?" or "Is this a set-up?". "Are they gonna ask me a bunch of questions?" "Do I have to give my name?".
Well friends. Let us reassure you that there's nothing to fear. We do not need any information from you. You simply show up and we do the rest. It's as easy as walking in and saying "Hi, I'm here for the syringe service". We will ask you if you prefer longs or shorts, and then we will proceed to get the supplies you need. That's it! If you're in a hurry, you can be in and out the door in 2 seconds! Or, if you'd like to hang out for a while and talk, that's fine too! We have cold spring water and hot coffee available as well.
We always encourage a text or phone call before coming to our office, to ensure availability of services. However, our office is usually open Monday through Thursday 9am-5pm and Friday 9am-1pm. Our address is 103 Clair Drive Suite C Piedmont, S.C. 29673. Just park and knock on the door. That's it!
We provide intramuscular naloxone and intranasal Narcan, used to prevent opioid overdose and empower those who use it. It's simple to use and comes with a short training. Feel free to ask for as much as you need. There is no limit!
Our new mobile unit is up and running, thanks to the Phoenix Center. This allows us to reach even more people than before, but it comes at a cost. Your help is needed so that we can continue to hit the streets!
