Harm reduction IS healthcare.
Take power into your hands with harm reduction tools to stay safer and survive the overdose crisis.
Carry Naloxone. Save a life.
Naloxone (brand name Narcan) is a medication that reverses the effects of an opioid overdose. It’s safe, easy-to-use, and effective.
When we carry naloxone for ourselves or for our loved ones who use drugs, we can use it to keep each other alive.

What is intramuscular naloxone?
Like nasal naloxone, intramuscular – or injectable – naloxone is just as effective in reversing an opioid overdose. Find out more here.
Safer supplies for safer use.
Syringe access programs are public health services that provide new, sterile syringes and safer injection supplies along with counseling and resources like treatment and housing. In New Jersey, these programs are called Harm Reduction Centers (HRCs) because they are hubs of support and community care for people who use drugs.
New Jersey has seven Harm Reduction Centers – and more on the way!

Harm reduction is essential. A harm reduction approach to drug use is the best strategy we have to end the overdose crisis, reduce risks associated with drug use, and affirm the dignity and bodily autonomy of every New Jerseyan.
