Prevention Resource Network’s Harm Reduction Center, a program of the VNA of Central Jersey. We are here to keep you safe, minimize death, and injury from high-risk behavior. At the core of harm reduction is the understanding that not all people who use drugs are ready or willing to participate in substance abuse treatment. Harm reduction includes overdose prevention, naloxone (Narcan), medical assisted treatment, syringe access, condoms, safer sex practices, reducing usage, HIV HCV and STD testing.

You can get naloxone for free at one of New Jersey’s seven Harm Reduction Centers,  located in Asbury Park, Atlantic City, Camden, Jersey City, Newark, Paterson, and Trenton.  Overdose education and prevention is one of the best ways to combat this overdose epidemic. At our harm reduction program we provide overdose counseling, education on the good Samaritan law, fentanyl test strips, and Narcan education and distribution. By educating those who are using and those who know people who are using, we can reduce the number of overdoses and the amount of deaths.
