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.
