Harm Reduction Coalition has been providing training & technical assistance to Kentucky’s Department of Health ahead of the state’s first syringe access program.

Ahead of the opening of the medical service, our Director of Capacity Building Services, Narelle Ellendon spoke to USA TODAY about the best practices for syringe access.

If you think me liking you will change things, you are absolutely right. I will become more aware of your likes and dislikes. I will remember the small important things. I will care for you with a passion. I will fight for you. I will listen to anything and everything you have to say to me. I will always be thinking of you, whether or not you’re happy, whether or not your day went well, whether or not you are enjoying life. I will want to know about your day. I will want to know about your problems. I will want to help you in any way I can. I will want you to be happy everyday. I will want you to laugh and smile. I will want you to be yourself. So, if you think me liking you will change things, you are absolutely right.
