Help prevent overdoses and the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C
HIV Alliance is a non-profit agency which specializes in harm reduction by providing free HIV and Hepatitis C testing, and needle exchange services. Needle Exchange programs help prevent the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C by exchanging used and potentially contaminated syringes for new ones. We safely destroy nearly a million used syringes each year, keeping them out of parks and other public areas. Through Needle Exchange we can connect individuals who use intravenous drugs to community resources like treatment services. We also distribute Naloxone (aka Narcan) which is the medication that can reverse an opioid overdose. We provide training on how to use Naloxone to individuals and community groups.
Services are provided:
- in Brookings from 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. on the 4th Wednesday of the month
- In Gold Beach from 12:00 - 4:00 p.m. on the 2nd Wednesday of the month
About HIV Alliance
1195a City View St., Eugene, OR 97402, US
Our mission is to provide community education and advocacy to promote awareness and understanding of HIV disease; to provide health care and support services to those living with HIV; and to empower individuals through education & support to make healthy choices to prevent further infection.
HIV Alliance provides medical and emotional support to those living with HIV disease, as well as case management (ie, assistance with finding housing and applying for disability, affording groceries, etc.). Our prevention department translates the client-centered, harm-reduction philosophy into a needle exchange program, prevention case management, MSM (men who have sex with men) outreach, and a Latino outreach project. We offer free anonymous HIV testing and risk counseling, as well as peer education programs and an HIV+ Speakers in the Schools program.
