About Our Harm Reduction Program

Our partnership with Clatsop County Public Health began in October 2017, and includes a syringe exchange, outreach and Naloxone distribution. We are a mobile unit that travels the county weekly.

We also hold community Naloxone training and distribution events as well as train and distribute to local organizations including law enforcement.

Since we started our program we have trained and distributed Naloxone to 1307 people. That total includes 396 people from other organizations, law enforcement and the community. Of that total we have had 93 overdose reversals reported back to us. That is 93 lives saved that we know of! We have reached out to people 1058 times giving them snacks and resource materials and have made 122 referrals to addiction treatment. We have also made 14 intake calls for treatment at our mobile site. This is phenomenal considering people are there to acquire syringes.
