Baltimore County’s Harm Reduction Program

 

Baltimore County’s Harm Reduction Program is a community-based public health program that provides comprehensive services to reduce the harms of drug use. The provision of sterile syringes and other injection equipment, along with the proper disposal of used syringes, helps to reduce the spread of HIV and viral hepatitis among people who use drugs.

The Harm Reduction Program provides HIV and hepatitis C testing and linkage to care, along with resources and education related to overdose prevention, first aid and safer sex. Participants are linked to additional services, including substance use disorder treatment, sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing, reproductive health and other medical and social services.
