Harm Reduction

The Harm Reduction Program (Syringe Services Program) is an HIV, Hepatitis C, and other blood-borne infections prevention program that offers intravenous drug users risk reduction education and sterile syringes to reduce the spread of infectious diseases. The program also offers education on behavioral health issues and provides access to treatment. To become a participant of the Syringe Services Program, all you need to do is register at our locations. Participants must be 18 years or older. This program is free and confidential. No identification is required for registration.

Services Update:

Washington County Health Department Division of Behavioral Health is currently open Monday–Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. until further notice due to the COIVD-19 pandemic. Please visit the Harm Reduction page on the Washington County Health Department website for up-to-date information on department hours and for alternative locations to get Narcan outside of office hours.

Harm Reduction Support Group: 

Tuesdays at 12:00-12:45 p.m. at 925 N. Burhans Blvd.

If you use substances that could lead to an overdose or have experienced an overdose, there is a group which meets once a week to look at ways to reduce your risk. With the increased chances of purchasing Fentanyl, be prepared. Know how to save a life, your life. There will be Narcan and Fentanyl test strips available every Tuesday.

Narcan:

Every Wednesday from 10 a.m.–11:45 a.m. the Harm Reduction Program will be available at 40 W. Church St. Hagerstown, MD, for the distribution of Narcan, either for refills or for those needing to be trained.

The Cultural Humility Awareness Group:

The Cultural Humility Awareness (CHA) Group was established to bring together health care providers and others. The goal of this group is to develop a shared understanding of values, beliefs, and needs of various cultures and the society we live in. By reaching this goal we can enhance the services we deliver to people. The group is curriculum driven with specific tasks to accomplish at and between each session.

This group meets the 2nd Friday of each month at different human services sites throughout Washington County. If you are interested and would like to know more and where the next meeting is, please call 240-313-3310.
