The Van/Harm Reduction Program
The program's goal is to prevent blood borne infections such as HIV and hepatitis infections by helping clients avoid sharing needles and equipment. A mobile van delivers clean needles and harm reduction supplies such as alcohol swabs, sterile water, cookers, ascorbic acid and filters to persons who use injection drugs. Van staff offer confidential support, education and referrals to clients for services such as addictions, detox, health care and shelter.
Contact the Van by calling 905 317-9966 (no call display) Monday-Saturday 8pm-midnight . The Van now accepts and responds to text messages. Please call the Van early as we may not be able to get to you if you call close to midnight.
