COVID-19 Harm Reduction Clinic Update: Starting March 19, in response to heightened COVID-19 infection control measures, the Harm Reduction Clinic will delay all non-urgent clinic visits.

We are also limiting the number of syringe exchange clinics allowed in the building during service hours.

  • Urgent visits are reserved for patients with urgent STI symptoms or wound care needs.
  • Medical services will continue on a walk-in only basis.
  • All clients will be screened for COVID-19 risk.
  • You may also be asked to take additional precautions, such as wearing a mask, or referred elsewhere as appropriate.

Multnomah County’s syringe exchange program provides:

  • Safe disposal of used syringes in exchange for new syringes, on a one-for-one basis
  • Overdose rescue kits including naloxone, a drug used to reverse opioid overdose
  • Sharps containers for safe storage of used syringes
  • Risk reduction counseling
  • Safer sex supplies
  • Wound and abscess care
  • Referrals to medical and mental health care, shelter services, and alcohol and drug treatment.

Syringe disposal at exchange sites is intended for syringe exchange clients. To protect their privacy, the public should not bring used syringes to exchange sites. Instead, please use these disposal options»
