What We Do

Some Background

Center for Prevention Services' Queen City Needle Exchange (QCNE) program improves the health & wellness of individuals & their communities in Charlotte, NC. We provide direct services to people who use drugs and who are at high risk for Hepatitis C, HIV, overdose, and other major health issues. Our staff & volunteers offer free sterile equipment and Naloxone (Narcan) to people who use drugs, people who use hormones, people who do sex work, and other marginalized groups. Our services help to prevent the spread of infectious disease and overdose fatalities.

Syringe exchange programs are a proven method to curb infection rates and drug misuse.  

QCNE offers life-saving supplies and empowers directly impacted people through connection, education, and linkage to a variety healthcare options and social resources.

 
 

Meeting People

Where They're At

 

We believe people who use drugs deserve dignity, health, love and respect.  All too often people are given the message that their health is not worth caring for as long as they are using drugs.

 

We know people who use drugs still care about their health and their lives.
