Services are available on a walk-in basis, Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 4:00pm. No appointment is necessary.

 

Participants of the syringe services program will be able to exchange their used syringes for sterile syringes on a 1:1 plus 20 ratio. This means that if a participant comes to Points West without bringing any used needles to safely dispose of, they will be allowed to leave with 20 sterile syringes. This ratio is to encourage the safe and proper disposal of used sharps (syringes), while also providing participants with necessary sterile equipment to prevent disease transmission. Participants will be allowed to take as many additional injection supplies as necessary (cookers, cottons, waters, alcohol wipes, tourniquets).

Participants will receive an identification card proving that they are a member of a syringe services program. This card protects participants from drug paraphernalia charges in the state of Colorado.
