Harm Reduction

WV Health Right offers an expanded WV state-certified harm reduction program at our main clinic and Covenant House locations. Harm reduction programs offer a comprehensive approach to providing safe disposal of syringes for injection drug users, testing for blood-borne viral infections, supplying clean syringes to lessen the possibility of infection, and helping intravenous drug users find much-needed treatment and social services to begin the process of recovery.

Harm reduction provides a set of practical strategies and ideas aimed at reducing the harm to the individual and society associated with drug use. WV Health Right also acts as a resource to the communities we serve by providing access to education and support for families and loved ones affected by substance use disorder.
