If you live in Macon County, or anywhere in far Western North Carolina, you should check out the Needle Exchange Program of Franklin for harm reduction supplies, including sterile syringes and life-saving nasal naloxone (Narcan). It is located at 3261 Georgia Road in Franklin, NC. It is open two days a week: Tuesdays, from 5pm-6:30pm, and Saturdays, from 12pm-2pm.
The Needle Exchange Program of Franklin is a joint project by WNCAP and Full Circle Recovery Center. They recently hosted a Harm Reduction Tea Party that brought together members of the community to discuss common issues related to addiction and recovery and to engage in productive harm reduction work, including putting together over 700 overdose-reversal kits.
