Madison County plans 4 sites for needle-exchange program - SFGate

ANDERSON, Ind. (AP) — Health officials are working to open four needle-exchange sites in a central Indiana county after being granted state approval for the program because of disease being spread among intravenous drug users.

The Madison County Health Department wants to have the sites open by late July or early August — two in Anderson and one each in Alexandria and Elwood.

People using the program will have access to other services at each site, such as substance abuse treatment programs and assistance in obtaining food and housing, county public health coordinator Stephanie Grimes told the Herald Bulletin
