Due to high demand for clean needles, WNCAP is limiting our hours of syringe distribution. We typically see the most activity on Mondays and Fridays so we have decided to remain open from 9am-5pm on those days, as well as Thursday.
On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, our friends at The Steady Collective distribute clean needles as well as naloxone (Narcan). On Tuesdays, they work out of Firestorm Books and Coffee (610 Haywood Rd in West Asheville) from 1:30pm-4pm. On Wednesdays, they are at the Haywood Street Congregation (297 Haywood St. in downtown Asheville) from 10am-3pm.
