IDAHO HARM REDUCTION PROJECT
Promoting Health and Safety for All Idahoans
Idaho Harm Reduction Project works to serve the drug using community of Idaho, as well as the general public by creating safe communities through evidence based programming, education, needle exchange and appropriate needle disposal.
HARM REDUCTION RIGHT TO YOUR DOOR
We are now shipping harm reduction supplies all across the state. If you or someone you know needs supplies, please call or text us or click on the link below.
*** If you do not have a permanent address, please call or text us so we can talk about alternative ways of getting harm reduction supplies.***
COMMUNITY NALOXONE DISTRIBUTION
People who use drugs are often the first responders to an overdose. If you or someone you know uses opioids, carrying Naloxone and knowing how to administer it in the event of an overdose could save a life. Watch a quick training video below and we will mail you Naloxone.
***If you work for an organization that would like to have Naloxone on hand, either to administer in case of an overdose or to distribute to clients/patients, please call 208-991-4574 or email us at email@example.com***
SAFE SHARPS DISPOSAL
We provide sharps containers to every one of our participants. We also run a Found Syringe Hotline. If you have found a used syringe -- in your yard, a park, an alley, wherever -- we will pick it up and safely dispose of it for you. Please call or text us at 208-991-4574 or fill out the reporting form below. ***Must be in the Treasure Valley area.***
The Idaho Harm Reduction Project was started by three public health professionals, who saw a gap in services in their home community. Their aim was to create resources for drug users and their families and reduce harm throughout the state.
The Idaho Harm Reduction Project is proud to provide services related to Naloxone, syringe exchange, and syringe disposal. We aim to connect community members with resources both within our organization and throughout the community, meeting people where they are at.
