Description

WORKING WITH THE COMMUNITY TO REDUCE THE HARM ASSOCIATED WITH INJECTING DRUG USE

ADIO follows a Harm Reduction Philosophy. This means that we seek to reduce the harms associated with injecting drug use and related behaviours, while neither condemning nor condoning drug use.

Staff

We are a peer-based organisation with peer workers who have lived experience of injecting drug use. All our staff are non-judgemental and here to help. We neither condemn nor condone the use of drugs and respect where you are on your journey.

Our needle exchange service is completely confidential and anonymous.

Our Hep C service is completely confidential and covered by the Health and Disability Code.

Ages

Adult / Pakeke, Youth / Rangatahi

Fees and Charges Categorisation

Free, Fees apply

Fees and Charges Description

The Hep C service is completely free to access, and we provide vouchers to encourage clients to get tested.

We have a range of free equipment: 3ml syringes and 1ml Luer Slip syringes and any gauge needles. We encourage you to bring in your used syringes and needles for safe disposal.

Our retail prices of other injecting equipment are based on our not-for-profit status and being a public health service.
