CHN’s Syringe Access Programs (SAP) is an anonymous program offering unused sterile syringes and injection equipment at no cost for individuals who inject substances. No photo ID is required. SAP is a harm reduction service implemented to reduce the spread of HIV, HCV and other infections.
The Syringe Access Program is available at the Denver, Fort Collins, Pueblo, and Grand Junction offices. Works and overdose prevention materials are available in our Greeley office. Participants of a Colorado Syringe Access Program are protected by state law and are exempt from paraphernalia tickets for syringes and injection equipment distributed by CHN and other Access Points. Participants will receive an anonymous participation card that reflects participation in the program.
