When & Where
Lower East Side Harm Reduction Center
Lower East Side Harm Reduction Center is a culturally diverse, community-based, non-profit organization whose mission is to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS, HCV and other drug-related harm among injection drug users and the community. Using a harm reduction philosophy, the center provides programs that are based on the nonjudgmental acceptance of drug users, evidence-based health science, and human rights. We accomplish this goal by offering practical strategies ranging from safer use to abstinence. In this supportive environment, we provide safe injection equipment, information on HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, risk reduction strategies, and safer sex practices, mental health services, case management, and overdose prevention. Ultimately, we aim to enhance the long-term well-being of our drug users and the community.
