COVID 19 UPDATE
The indoor space is closed for drop ins, but harm reduction educators and peer workers are still available on site and through outreach.
Kits and access to needles, condoms and other harm reduction gear continues to be available at LAMP Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings 9:30am-11:30am at the Street Level entrance, and at main LAMP entrance outside of those times. On Saturdays supplies, meals and access to staff for support are also available at St. Margaret’s church on 6th street until July 18th.
Harm reduction practices are dedicated to reducing the social, health, and economic harms associated with activities such as substance use, drug distribution, sex and sex work. Harm reduction commits to meeting people where they are to reduce the risk of infections, communicable diseases, overdose, and violence. The harm reduction program at LAMP offers bi-weekly dedicated drop-in times for people who use drugs.
The services provided through the drop in include regular street outreach, supply distribution, kit making, safe disposal of supplies, condom distribution, sex worker supports, as well as drug and drug use information. Our harm reduction program provides workshops for people who use drugs, their allies, and service providers as well as peer-based services and support, volunteer opportunities and referrals both within LAMP and in the community. Scheduled HIV and Hep C testing days are offered regularly, along with a Methadone/Suboxone clinic.
