Syringe Exchange

VOCAL-NY is a New York State-licensed Syringe Exchange Program (SEP).


To keep people who inject drugs safe, we offer sterile injecting equipment (syringes, cookers, cotton filters, water ampules) and other supplies (bandages, antibiotic ointment, gauze, alcohol pads) for safer injection. For people who smoke or sniff drugs, we offer stem tips, chore-boy copper filters, and multicolored straws to reduce the risk of sharing. 

We also provide fentanyl testing strips to our participants, as well as hygiene supplies like socks, hand sanitizer, etc. 

Syringe Disposal

We accept used syringes at our storefront and on outreach. We also offer personal hazardous waste containers to make sure syringes are disposed of safely.

Our Peer-Delivered Syringe Exchange (PDSE) is a program to help reach injecting drug users (IDUs) who are, due to different factors, unable to visit our Syringe Exchange Program (SEP) to collect their necessary materials, as well as dispose of their used syringes safely.
