NEED has fentanyl test strips! We are hearing more and more about fentanyl in meth as well as in heroin. Come to NEED's sites to get strips that test for the presence of fentanyl.

As of August 1, 2017, NEED no longer offers hepatitis C treatment and testing services at our Tuesday site. We are greatful to Dr. Sylvestre for the services she has contributed to NEED.

NEED now offers overdose prevention treatment through the distribution of naloxone, an opioid antagonist that can prevent overdoses. Naloxone (also known as Narcan) is available at all three of our sites.
