Find a Syringe Services Program

Syringe Services Programs (SSPs) are effective community-based interventions that can prevent infectious diseases, link clients to treatment for substance use disorders, and can reduce overdose deaths among people who inject drugs. They do not increase illegal drug use or crime.

SSPs offer free and anonymous services including syringes, supplies, overdose prevention resources, and other services in several communities around Vermont. Clients of SSPs are protected from our state’s paraphernalia law.

Sterile syringes may be sold at pharmacies throughout Vermont without a prescription. However, individual pharmacists may choose not to sell them.
