Star Ledger: Needle exchange puts focus on safety

Needle exchange puts focus on safety

More than two months after Newark started a needle exchange program, 78 clients have taken advantage of the new services North Jersey Community Research Initiative offers at its facility on Central Avenue. Hidalgo, 38, and Gunter, 31, recruiters for NJCRI, are doing their best to increase that number.

“We try to help people out,” Hidalgo said. “We can’t make them stop using, but at least we’re getting out the message.”
