What we offer

Addaction Fife is a specialist harm reduction service that offers a wider range of equipment than pharmacy based exchanges. It provides a range of other services to help reduce drug related harm including:

  • 1:1 assessment, referral and support into treatment (only if requested)
  • Overdose prevention work including access to The Take Home Naloxone programme (THN)
  • Blood borne virus testing for HIV and Hepatitis
  • Safer drug use advice and information
  • Needle syringe provision
  • Onward referrals
  • Free condoms
  • Sexual health advice
  • Help to stop injecting
  • Access point for further treatment

Needle exchange staff can provide advice and information on issues related to your substance use. Simply let them know what you’re using and they’ll ensure you get the right equipment. They will also be happy to discuss your injecting practice and any concerns or questions you may have in relation to it.

Some basic and anonymous details will be asked for on the first visit. There will be an expectation for you to use the same information at every exchange.

 

Addaction Fife also operates a mobile outreach clinic.

“If you would like to find out how to reduce the risk of your drug or alcohol use, please pay us a visit. Even if you do not want to stop using, we can help you stay safe. As well as our site in Leven, we also run a mobile needle exchange van.”
