SYRINGE/NEEDLE SERVICES

HEAL's Bangor, Ellsworth, Machias, Belfast, Calais and Rockland locations offer new, sterile needles and other supplies. This exchange service helps to stop the spread of HIV and Hepatitis C and provides a safe means of disposal for used needles. The program is anonymous and discrete (so, no need to bring an ID), and registering for the program takes only a few minutes!
For questions about our services, email info@mainehealthequity.org or call the office closest to your location during our business hours!
Please note: Per Executive Order 27, mobile syringe exchange and delivery is now available, and the 1-for-1 rule is temporarily suspended.
