Welcome to Safe Exchange Tampa! We are a non-profit based in the Tampa Bay area devoted to harm-reduction techniques that help to stem the rising rates of blood-borne illnesses in the area and help to minimize the harm done by injecting drugs. We are an aspiring SEP, or Syringe Exchange Program, and we are focused on such Harm Reduction techniques as education, Narcan (Naloxone) training and distribution, as well as distributing condoms and sterile water.
Dozens of peer-reviewed controlled trial publications give support for the effectiveness of damage reduction for a large number of clients and disorders with no indications of induced effects. Harm reduction tactics give further tools for clinicians operating with clients who, for no matter the reason, might not be prepared, willing, or able to pursue full abstinence as a goal.
