Story Behind the Curve

To learn more about the Indiana Department of Health Harm Reduction Program and the story of harm reduction in Indiana please visit the following link -

Syringe service programs (SSPs) and non-syringe harm reduction programs (NSHR) are established at the discretion of each local community. Specifically, the law leaves the legal decision to open and close SSPs to the local governing body (county commissioners and/or city council). The number of SSPs decreased because the Scott County Commissioners elected to close the SSP there as of 12/31/2021. The city of Austin in Scott County initially approved a SSP in late 2021 but they have not named a qualified entity to provide services in alignment with the law and thus, they do not have an operational SSP.
