PHS is excited to share with you our new website. We hope you find everything you're looking for - and more - check back often for updates, news and highlights about the work we do to support the community we serve.
The Mobile Needle Exchange (NEX van) program focuses PHS harm reduction operations and experience throughout the city of Vancouver to pick up discarded dirty needles, and to provide education on safe use of illicit drugs. It promotes connections with social services and housing organizations to build community involvement.
The NEX van exists to reduce the risk of HIV and Hepatitis C, as well as the risks of bacterial and fungal infections associated with intravenous drug use. It also provides thousands of referrals to healthcare, detox, treatment and other services each year.
To connect with this service, call the PHS hotline (604-657-6561), the City of Vancouver’s 311 info line, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
