Harlow needle exchange

About the Harlow centre

Our new premises have been refurbished to offer an open access reception area, group working room, needle and syringe provision room and individual treatment rooms.

Our Harlow Team is available Monday to Friday for anyone wanting to access advice, information, support, assessment and access to more formal treatment.

We offer a steroid only needle exchange on Thursdays.

We also provide a special treatment package for service users along with their families. We do this by first assessing an individual’s needs and then planning a treatment journey with them and their families to enable them to make permanent improvements in their lives.

Under 25?

As part of our joined up service provision you can access Essex Young Peoples Drug & Alcohol service (EYPDAS) for under 25’s at this centre.
