Muhlenberg County Health Department Harm Reduction

Clients of the syringe exchange bring in their dirty needles and exchange them for clean syringes and other supplies including condoms. We also provide referrals to treatment and free, anonymous testing for HIV. Other STI testing services are provided on a confidential basis.
