Get Supplies!

For free safer drug use or sex supplies, TEXT 504-535-4766 to meet up with a volunteer. This line is staffed by many people and we do not keep regular hours, so it's best to plan ahead a day or two - we are not an emergency "service"

In your text message, please be specific about what you need. A good message includes Ideal size (gauge) and how many syringes you'd like, other supplies you're looking for (such as Narcan, Fentanyl Test Strips, Condoms, Biohazard Bins), your Location, how Mobile you are (car, bus, bike, foot), and when you're free to meet up. 

We also have weekly "drop-ins," or regular times where volunteers stay in one public place so people can go to them to get supplies. Please check with us day-of to ensure that a volunteer will be there.
  • Tuesdays: 3-4 PM at Duncan Plaza (Gravier and Loyola), between the Main Library and City Hall
  • Saturdays: 2-4 PM at St. Claude and Andry (at the abandoned Gasco station)
Our syringes come in a range of sizes and brands (EasyTouch, BD, McKesson):
  • 30g 5/16" (short)
  • 30g 1/2" (long)
  • 29g 1/2" (long)
  • 28g 1/2" (long)
  • 27g 1/2" (long)
We have intramuscular needles for naloxone; we occasionally have sizes suitable for hormones and steroids too.  

Our injection supplies include:
  • Cookers - clean thing to prepare drugs in 
  • Cottons - to filter drugs
  • Alcohol Pads - to sterilize an injection site on your body before injecting
  • Tourniquets - to make your veins easier to inject into (remove after you register)
  • Water Strips - sterile water to prepare drugs with
  • BZK wipes - antibacterial hand wipes to clean your hands before preparing a shot
We have Fentanyl Testing Strips to test your drugs for Fentanyl, a very strong opioid often cut in many drugs, including Heroin, Cocaine, and Methamphetamine. We can walk you through how to use them or give you a flyer with all the info.

Fentanyl Test Strip Directions: 
  1. Add 1/4 inch of clean water to drug residue (in bag or cooker)
  2. Dip end of the test strip in water for 15 seconds
  3. Set aside the strip and check it after 5 minutes
  4. *ONE LINE = FENTANYL!* (yes, one line is positive for fentanyl)
  5. TWO LINES = NO FENTANYL 
  6. No lines = Invalid Test, must Re-Do 
We sometimes have Safer Smoking supplies, such as glass stems for crack smoking and glass pipes for meth smoking, but supplies are limited and go quickly. If you want to grab some from a drop-in, please text ahead of time to make sure we have them and come early. We are working on having smoking supplies more consistently; thank you for being patient! 

New Orleans Syringe Access Program (NOSAP) is another organization in New Orleans with new syringes and safer use supplies. They're open every Friday from 12-5 PM and are located at 1631 Elysian Fields Ave. You can bring in old syringes to dispose of and obtain new ones in exchange, or get up to a box without bringing any old syringes.
