authorization

Trystereo - New Orleans Harm Reduction Network is a legal syringe access program. Syringe access supplies should not be considered paraphernalia as they protect participants from communicable diseases like HIV and HCV.

  • In 2017, the Louisiana Legislature allowed for syringe access programs in the state, if local government authorized them (La R.S. 40:1024).

  • In 2018, New Orleans City Council passed an ordinance (Code 1956, § 18-32; M.C.S., Ord. No. 27630, § 1, 12-14-17) legalizing syringe access programs in New Orleans.

  • In 2017 (renewed 2018 and 2019), the Louisiana Department of Health issued a Standing Order (La R.S. 40:978.2) allowing for the distribution and use of naloxone without a prescription from a doctor.

  • Trystereo’s overdose prevention program is authorized by standing order since 2017 (available upon request).
