Public Health and Social Services

The Thurston County Syringe Services Program is a legal, non-judgmental, confidential place to exchange syringes and get harm reduction supplies and referrals to other resources to stay safe and healthy.

The Syringe Services Program provides a way for people who use drugs to safely dispose of used syringes and obtain sterile syringes at no cost. The program provides prevention and care services that reduce risk for acquiring and transmitting bloodborne infections. The program also provides education and supplies to respond to opioid and stimulant drug overdose, as well as testing and peer support to improve overall health. 

Syringe Services Programs aid in the public health goals of reducing HIV and hepatitis C infection rates, and increase use of the life-saving opioid overdose reversal medication naloxone and substance use treatment participation. 

Other services include:

  • Condom distribution to prevent sexual transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
  • Overdose education and naloxone administration training.
  • HIV testing, hepatitis C testing, and care navigation services.
  • Peer support.
  • Referrals to substance use treatment and other medical and social services.
