About Our Harm Reduction Program

Choice Health Network’s harm reduction program provides compassionate, nonjudgmental care for people who inject drugs. The harm reduction team provides community outreach services including syringe access, injection supplies, HIV/HCV rapid testing (finger stick), confirmatory HIV testing (blood draw), and linkage to care, CHN’s original syringe services program was founded in 2018 by a caring group of people and has since increased services and expanded operations to two sites in the Knoxville area. The harm reduction team is made up of people with backgrounds in social work, medicine, nursing, public policy, and public health whose goal is to provide an experience that is safe, confidential, nonjudgmental, and takes a holistic approach to healthcare. We look forward to seeing you!

What is Harm Reduction?

Harm reduction is a social justice philosophy created by and for people who use drugs. Harm reduction strives to mitigate the real harms associated with drug use without stigmatizing people who use drugs.
